The Walking Dead Strike Tomorrow

Press Release:

AMC’s DRAMA SERIES “THE WALKING DEAD” STRIKES  MAJOR CITIES WORLDWIDE WITH ZOMBIE INVASION
 
26 Cities “Infected,” Including New York, Boston, Washington D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, London, Munich, Madrid, Rome, Athens, Johannesburg, Sao Paolo and Buenos Aires

AMC and Fox International Channels (FIC) Unveil Plan to Stage Global Invasions on Tuesday, October 26
                             
October 25, 2010 –   In anticipation of the premiere of AMC’s new drama series, “The Walking Dead,” on Sunday October 31 at 10 p.m., AMC and FOX international networks plan to stage a worldwide zombie invasion stunt.  “The Walking Dead’s” international broadcaster, Fox International Channels (FIC), will kick-off the stunts with overseas invasions beginning at daybreak in Taipei and Hong Kong on Tuesday, October 26, and moving across the globe where the stunt culminates at the show’s Los Angeles premiere.
 
A week prior to the unprecedented global premiere of the show, AMC and FIC have planned to target one day multi-city events that will occur during morning commute peak hours.  Taking direction from “The Walking Dead’s” legendary make-up artist Greg Nicotero, hundreds of zombies will consecutively take over major cities worldwide during a 24-hour period.  The planned global outbreaks will center in and around the world’s major landmarks, including the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., Big Ben in London, the Prado Museum in Madrid, the Bosphorus Bridge in Istanbul, the Acropolis in Athens and more.  They will begin at daybreak in Taipei and Hong Kong, followed by Istanbul, Madrid, Munich, London, Sao Paolo, Buenos Aires, New York City and Los Angeles, among others. Attacking a total of 26 cities, each outbreak will be documented and shared with fans the world over as it happens.
