A film quality drama series about zombies? Somebody pinch me!" so wrote Heather Havrilesky of Salon.com in 2010, referring to one entry in the list of nine new TV shows not to miss. That show was The Walking Dead, a horror drama series aired on cable television channel AMC. But Havrilesky, of course, was not dreaming. TWD was the real deal, earning nominations for Best New Series from the Writers Guild of America Awards 2011 and Best Television Drama from the 68th Golden Globe Awards.
