If you don’t know what all the zombie hubbub is about, here comes your chance to get hooked. AMC will host a Season 3 Preview Weekend July 7-8 beginning at 10:30 (central) each day. It will feature a marathon of all 19 of the show’s episodes, and a live primetime Talking Dead special. That show allows fans to call in and ask questions of the show’s writers and actors. Celebrity lovers of the show stop by also.
The Talking Dead ep will contain a Season 3 preview including some new scenes, sneak peeks of the new set and a contest. AMC is giving one fan the chance to earn a “stagger-on” role as a zombie.The marathon’s timing is no coincidence, as it takes place the week before Comic-Con. That event has grown from a mere convention into the summer showplace for upcoming movies, TV shows and yes, even a few comic books.
Viewers can see the production of the Comic-Con booth for The Walking Dead and get an update on the Walking Dead Social Game. There will also be polls to determine awards such as Favorite Walker Kill and Favorite Survivor. After Talking Dead, AMC will show a black-and-white version of The Walking Dead pilot episode as a tribute to the Robert Kirkman’s comic black-and-white look. This sounds like a brain-eating good time.
