About the Show
AMC Talking Dead is the network's first live after-show that serves as a platform for discussion for AMC’s series, The Walking Dead. The hour-long episodes are produced by Michael Davies’ Embassy Row and are hosted by Chris Hardwick (Nerdist; @midnight). Talking Dead airs Sundays at 10/9c, immediately following the premiere broadcast of new episodes of The Walking Dead. AMC Talking Dead features Hardwick spending time with fans, actors, producers and TV enthusiasts, recapping that most recent Dead episode, providing sneak-peeks and discussion of upcoming episodes and taking questions and comments from viewers. The series is executive produced by Michael Davies, Jen Kelly Patton and Brandon Monk.
“As an ENORMOUS fan of both The Walking Dead comic and television show, I pretty much begged for this job. I'm fairly certain I slobbered on the phone while doing it. Dissecting the moves of Rick Grimes and the remaining survivors after every episode is something I would be doing with my friends anyway, so the fact that AMC is actually paying to do so is a bonus,” said Hardwick. “This after-show gives fans the opportunity to nerd out about the story in a very public forum: what they like, what they don't like, or what questions they may have. Additionally, it will better inform viewers on making intelligent decisions when faced with the zombie apocalypse, which will probably happen sooner or later.”
