AMC Confirms 'Walking Dead' Companion Series
AMC has officially ordered a pilot based on the same zombie infested universe as "The Walking Dead." The series will go into production later this year, according to Entertainment Weekly. The program will be set in a different location other than Georgia and feature a new group of characters, so it won't techinically be a spinoff.

The show's original executive producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert are involved in the new project.

AMC president Charlie Collier commented: “Almost from the beginning of 'The Walking Dead' on AMC, fans have been curious about what is going...

Is it just us, or does Saul (Bob Odenkirk) look younger, and sound maybe a bit more gregarious? It's possible the first season will take us back to the early days of Saul's career. It may in fact turn into a bit of a 'Breaking Bad' story in and of i...

'Halt And Catch Fire' Season 1 Finale: Highlights From '1984' And What We Want To See In Season 2

'Halt And Catch Fire' Season 1 Finale: Highlights From '1984' An
Well that was certainly a strange finale to a slow season. It was fitting that a show about a man ripping off a widely popular computer company would never amount to more than a Mad Men-light. However, the last few episodes of the season showed real promise to build up to something more. Halt and Catch Fire never should have been a slow building show. It should have started with the strong beats and relatable instead of praying that the audience would stick around for it to get there. Still, a second season would be welcomed, especially if the writers take what the learned from the second h...

'Halt And Catch Fire' Recap: 'Up Helly Aa'

With Donna, the unsung hero of The Giant, at the wheel, Joe, Gordon, and Cameron try to figure out the best possible presentation for their stolen prototype. The burning remnants of Cardiff E...

'Halt And Catch Fire' Recap 'The 214s'

'Halt And Catch Fire' Recap 'The 214s'
John Bosworth is the MVP of the Cardiff Electric team. It just took his downfall for people to realize it. The core team of three, Joe, Gordon, and Cameron, have spent so much time engaging in power plays over who is the most important to the PC project. Joe is all about being the vision. Gordon has been desperate to make up for his failings with the Symphonic that he has worked himself to the bone creating The Giant. Cameron is the raw talent in coding. It’s easy to overlook just how important a sane-minded business person is to this project.

John started off as one of Joe’s biggest naysa...

Introducing the Contrail. Joe has finally decided on a name for his PC project. The Cardiff Electric team is another milestone closer to finishing the project.

However, Joe has his heart set on Simon (played by D.B. Woodside), one of the top industrial designers in the world to create the case. He has a hand in designing the DeLorean, which is as 80s ...

'Halt And Catch Fire' Recap: 'Landfall'
These days we’re so used to technology being such an interactive, immersive universe that it can be tough to remember that there was a time that it was simpler. Much of tonight’s Halt and Catch Fire is centered on Cameron’s quest to give their operating system a personality, like a stone-age version of Siri. She compares it to her ugly childhood doll. She knew it wasn’t much, but when her father gave it a voice and wiggled it around, it created a bond between her and the doll. That’s what she believes the new computer needs too, something that makes people who are computer illiterate want a...

Have you heard of the Walking Dead Escape? A guest writer for Starpulse attended the interactive zombie run experience in Hartford, Conn., over the weekend and watched thousands of fans get caught up in the action, inspired by the hit AMC series.

"Walkers" and "Survivors" were released onto the obstacle course, which included school buses, a maze of cars, a field and hospital. Starting at 6 p.m., fans were enc...
