    Co-Writer Announced for The Walking Dead Companion Series

    I don't know if this has been posted already...

    Some news on spin-off:

    Back in September, AMC announced that they were in the initial stages of developing a companion series to The Walking Dead. Since then, fans have been anxiously awaiting new details, but the series is in the very early stages of development. However, it hast just been announced that someone will join Robert Kirkman as the series co-writer and executive producer.
    AMC shared the news that they have sealed and overall deal with Dave Erickson (Sons of Anarchy), who has been tapped to co-write, along with Robert Kirkman, and serve as an executive producer on The Walking Dead companion series. On top of being involved with Sons of Anarchy as a writer and co-executive producer, he also had the same roles on AMC’s Low Winter Sun.

    Cool. Never saw LWS but SOA was definitely chock full of good writing (I watched up until this season anyway).

    I'm very interested in this "companion series". I'm going to like getting a new perspective on things while also enjoying Rick's group.
    There's so much potential here, but knowing AMC....I probably shouldn't get my hopes up or set high expectations.

    Robert Kirkman and a guy from Low Winter Sun? My expectations have lowered considerably.

    Same here, but I can't really judge since I've never given LWS a chance. I've heard good things about SOA, though.

    SOA had multiple decent writers, and I'm gonna guess this guy wasn't one of them if he was also a part of LWS. That show was terrible, and I watched the whole season.

    I honestly wonder why they're even doing a companion series. Don't get me wrong, I'll be watching it every week, but it kind of just feels like a cash grab. I am super stoked to see this fantastic universe from a new perspective, just hope they take their time with it and not try to shove it down our throats before the Zombie-craze ends.

    When I saw that he was attached to Sons of Anarchy: "HELL YEAH!"

    When I saw that he was attached to Low Winter Sun: "......."
