Co-Executive Producer Adam Davidson, who directed the pilot, is also directing the second and third episodes. The series’ first season, consisting of six one-hour episodes, will premiere on AMC in late summer.

    The series, set in Los Angeles, stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane  as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Elizabeth Rodriguez as Liza, Ruben Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia and Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris.

    AMC has ordered six, one-hour episodes for “Into the Badlands,” which will premiere in late 2015.

    Walker Stalker Con Brings Major Celebrities to Boston in June 2014

    Walker Stalker Boston

    Press Release:

    WALKER STALKER CON BRINGS MAJOR CELEBRITIES FROM ZOMBIE, HORROR AND SCI‐FI FILMS AND TV SHOWS TO BOSTON THIS JUNE!

    BOSTON, MA – Walker Stalker Con, a zombie and horror themed fan‐centric convention, will be held at The Westin Boston Waterfront in Boston, MA on June 13, 14 & 15, 2014. Fan access to celebrity guests will be the primary focus of this event.

    In Atlanta, GA on November 1‐3, 2013, Walker Stalker Con made its debut where it assembled more “The Walking Dead” cast members than any other convention ever before, along with other actors from zombie and horror films. The inaugural event had over 10,500 attendees. In Chicago, IL on March 14‐16, 2014, Walker Stalker Con made its second appearance as a convention and the first Walker Stalker Con of 2014. Now, Walker Stalker Con has set its sights on Boston!

    With cast members from “The Walking Dead” returning to the upcoming Boston convention, along with stars from other zombie and horror films, Walker Stalker Con continues to position itself to be particularly unique.

    Walker Stalker Con is the fruit of The Walker Stalkers Podcast with James & Eric (www.thewalkerstalkers.com). The podcast began with an amazing trip to Senoia, GA where James & Eric were able to view the set of The Walking Dead and meet the incredible actors from the show. As a result of this experience, a podcast began and then the idea of a convention focused around recreating that same experience with the cast and crew of the show, along with talented actors and artists from other zombie shows, movies and art.

    In April 2013, James and Eric decided a podcast wasn’t enough, so they launched a Zombie, Horror and Sci‐Fi themed fan‐centric convention called Walker Stalker Con (www.WalkerStalkerCon.com). “We hope to continue this same kind of access and involvement as we did with our successful convention in Atlanta,” say James Frazier and Eric Nordhoff, hosts of the podcast. “We want fans of TV shows, films and comics in this genre to have a chance to have real interaction with their favorite celebrities – not just a 10 second hand shake and photo opp.”

    Walker Stalker Con is not just a convention. It is a fan meet‐up and an opportunity for each guest to come away feeling like they’ve had an amazing experience and became part of a greater community of zombie lovers! Walker Stalker Con is three days of events, panels, and experiences that zombie fans won’t find anywhere else!

    Confirmed guests for the convention include (with more to be announced):

    Norman Reedus (Daryl, The Walking Dead, Murphy, The Boondock Saints)

    Sean Patrick Flanery (Connor, The Boondock Saints)

    David Della Rocco (Rocco, The Boondock Saints)

    Steven Yeun (Glenn, The Walking Dead)

    Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (Bob, The Walking Dead)

    Clifton Collins, Jr. (Romeo, The Boondock Saints II)

    Alanna Masterson (Tara, The Walking Dead)

    Nick Gomez (Tomas, The Walking Dead)

    Emma Bell (Amy, The Walking Dead)

    Madison Lintz (Sophia, The Walking Dead)

    Vincent Ward (Oscar, The Walking Dead)

    Travis Love (Shumpert, The Walking Dead)

    Meyrick Murphy (Meghan, The Walking Dead)

    Russ Streiner (Johnny, Night of the Living Dead)

    The full list of guests can be found at http://www.walkerstalkercon.com/boston/guests/
    and will be updated daily as guests are announced.

    Walker Stalker Con kicks off on Friday, June 13th at noon. The exhibit floor will be open all three days featuring games, toys, comic and other memorabilia for true fans of zombie and horror.

    About “The Walking Dead”

    “The Walking Dead” tells the story of the weeks and months that follow after a zombie apocalypse. County Sheriff Rick Grimes (Lincoln) travels with his family and a small group of survivors, constantly in search of a safe and secure home. But the constant pressure of fighting off death on a daily basis takes a heavy toll, sending many to the lowest depths of human cruelty. As Rick struggles to keep his family alive, he will discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth.
