If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Deadline has reported that the writers of AMC's hit series "The Walking Dead" have been fired than, no other than Frank Darabont the Director/Executive Producer of the series.
Deadline has said: "Frank Darabont has let go of the writers on the hot freshman AMC series, which has already renewed for a second season. That includes Darabont's No. 2, writing executive producer Charles Eglee. Writer turnover on series between seasons is commonplace but wholesale overhauls are unusual"
"Darabont is looking to forgo having a writing staff for the second season of Walking Dead altogether and assign scripts to freelancers. The freelance model is employed by the Starz/BBC series Tourchwood, which in turn borrowed it from the U.K. where the show originated. Having BBC as producer has allowed Torchwood to proceed with no writing staff but I hear such a plan on an U.S.-based network series such as Walking Dead may face issues with the Writers Guild.
The first season of "The Walking Dead" ends on December 5th, with only 6 episodes. The second season is set to have 13.
"The Walking Dead" season finale airs December 5th at 10/9c.
