AMC has just announced that it is in the very early stages of developing a spin-off/companion series to its highly rated horror drama THE WALKING DEAD with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and producer Gale Anne Hurd for a potential 2015 premiere.

From Deadline Hollywood:

“Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” said Charlie Collier, AMC’s president and general manager. He noted that the companion series will have “an entirely new story and cast of characters”. “It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse,” he said. Added Kirkman, on whose comic The Walking Dead was based, “After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn’t be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe. The opportunity to make a show that isn’t tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.” Season 3 of The Walking Dead ranked as the top program on television (broadcast or cable) among adults 18-49. Season 4 kicks off October 13.

Maybe the new series will be a comedy… I doubt it, but wouldn’t it be fun if we got 20 minute snippets of things like this happening in the Walking Dead  Universe:
