New showrunner “WALKING” toward “DEAD”

It was announced late last year that Glen Mazzara was stepping down as showrunner of the AMC zombie TV
favorite, and now it looks like a replacement is at hand.

Variety reports
that Scott M. Gimple, a writer/producer on THE WALKING DEAD, is in talks to
become the new showrunner beginning with the fourth season. He’d become the
third person to hold that position, with Mazzara having taken over for the
departed Frank Darabont in 2011; Mazzara and AMC, according to both parties,
split amicably due to creative differences. Gimple has also written and
produced for TV’s LIFE, CHASE and FLASHFORWARD, and co-scripted GHOST RIDER:
SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE. The second half of WALKING DEAD’s third season begins airing
Sunday, February 10.
