The Walking Dead is a drama based on the brilliant black and white comic books by Robert Kirkman, and developed for TV by Frank Darabont  (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile). It tells the story of deputy sheriff Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln – This Life, Teachers, Strike Back) who awakes from a coma to find a world seemingly in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.
