TV Line reports that AMC’s The Walking Dead is “nearing a deal” with a new showrunner. And the most likely candidate… Scott Gimple! Here’s AMC’s quote about the new blood: “Gimple, whose previous writing credits include NBC’s Chase and ABC’s FlashForward, joined Walking Dead as a producer in Season 2 and was promoted to supervising producer for the current third season. He has penned five Dead episodes, including this season’s ‘Hounded.’”
Sounds like Gimple’s got plenty of experience with fast-moving ensemble shows, but the question remains as to how long he’ll last. So far, The Walking Dead’s showrunners have had the life expectancy of a Spinal Tap Drummer seeing as how this is the third showrunner in roughly as many seasons, so only time will tell if this change will stick.
This is the Action Flick Chick, and you’ve just been kicked in the ass!
