It's October, and this month we get not one, but two -- TWO -- zombie series coming to a TV screen near you.

Most prominently, The Walking Dead, based on Robert Kirkman's comic book is premiering on AMC Halloween night. Directed by Frank Darabont and starring Andrew Lincoln (late of Brit series Afterlife) and Sarah Wayne Callies (hello, Prison Break), the show has already generated positive buzz, and hopefully will be as well-recieved as AMC mainstays Mad Men and Breaking Bad. Really, zombies, on TV weekly. Santa must have finally gotten around to reading my letter.

In addition, Brit series Dead Set is finally coming to America, premiering on IFC, October 25th. Plot: the contestants of Big Brother are trapped on set while, unbeknownst to them, a zombie outbreak takes place in the streets. Hilarity ensues. Well, not so much hilarity, as lots of running and screaming and eating of brains. You can view the trailer here.
