TV News: Walking Dead Executive Producer Denies Darabont Fired Writer’s Staff

The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens) denies reports that director Frank Darabont fired the hit AMC show’s writing staff. She also confirmed that all of the principal cast are signed up for multiple seasons of the zombie show.

On December 1st, Deadline reported Frank Darabont — who developed the Walking Dead for television and directed the pilot — had let go the show’s writers, including Murder One co-creator Charles “Chic” Eglee. However today, Hurd denied and said. “It’s completely inaccurate,” she told EW exclusively.  “[In] the writers’ room, there are people that have set up other projects that will be their first priority if their own series is picked up as a pilot or if it’s a series. I think [Eglee] just decided that he wants to run his own show.” Hurd said the Walking Dead’ second season will probably return in October

It was first reported by Deadline that Frank Darabont has let go of the writers on the freshman AMC series, which included writing executive producer Charles “Chic” Eglee. It was also rumored having a writing staff for the second season of Walking Dead altogether and assign scripts to freelancers.
