Look For "The Walking Dead" on AMC in October

Jonny Lee Miller is the frontrunner for Rick

Jon Bernthal as Shane

AMC has just announced that they will forgo the pilot episode and go straight to series with an order of six episodes of the zombie thriller to begin shooting in Atlanta in June and premiering in October, dovetailing with Halloween and AMC's annual 'Fearfest' two-week marathon of horror and thriller pics.
As for casting news, according to MTV news;
"Eli Stone" and "Hackers" star Jonny Lee Miller is rumored as a frontrunner for the leading role of Rick Grimes, a police officer who becomes the leader of a group that has survived the recent zombie outbreak. The casting has not yet been confirmed. Jon Bernthal of "The Pacific" has been cast in the key role of Shane, Rick's partner on the police force and the leader of the survivors until Rick joins the group.
