The Walking Dead Adds Two New Writers
When AMC announced that they were renewing the hit series The Walking Dead for a fourth season, they also dropped the bomb that show runner Glen Mazzara would be stepping down. In February, it was announced that Scott Gimple, who joined the crew during season two as a writer would be taking over. In order to add to the creativity pile, the series has brought on two additional writers in Curtis Gwinn and Channing Powell.
Supervising Producer and writer Curtis Gwinne has worked on numerous projects such as Adult Swim’s NTSF:SD:SVU and MTV’s zombie parody Death Valley. Channing Powell claims the hit USA series White Collar on his resume. The pair will join Matt Negrete at the writer’s table, who is also an alum from White Collar.
The Walking Dead creator, Robert Kirkman, continues to serve as Executive Producer, along with newly-promoted Greg Nicotero, and others, including Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert, Evan T. Reilly, Angela Kang and Nichole Beattie.
The series is gearing up for its season finale in just a few weeks, which is rumored to be a jaw-dropper, as the past two season closers have been. The third season has continued to draw huge numbers and rave reviews thanks to its much more eventful storyline. You can catch The Walking Dead on Sunday nights on AMC.
