AMC orders Walking Dead pilot

The Walking Dead are one step closer to invading your television set!

Variety reports that AMC has ordered a pilot episode for the small-screen adaptation of the Robert Kirkman comic.

This is some pretty fantastic news for all you zombie fans out there, considering it means that — assuming the final product isn’t atrocious or too gory for TV — we’ll likely see at least one episode of the series.

Shawshank Redemption producer Frank Darabont apparently wrote the adaptation, while Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert are exec-producing.
