When it premiered in October 2010, the AMC show “The Walking Dead” was full of so much promise. Gifted filmmaker Frank Darabont was the showrunner for the first season, and turned in one of the best pilots of recent memory, but after clashing with the cable network over the show’s reduced budget, Darabont stepped down as showrunner and the series marched on, never quite matching the quality of its debut.

You might recall that back in February, it was reported that the folks behind the AMC horror series "The Walking Dead" wanted John Hawkes for the role of the Governor, a tyrant of a survivor town the lead characters stumble across. Well phone calls were made, and maybe a dinner was bought, but Hawkes turned down the role, and he explains that he just couldn't do a show with commercials in it. Or something.

We'll try to dance around spoilers but the finale of the second season of "Boardwalk Empire" was shocking not only in terms of storyline but also with the fact they tore out the heart of the show, or at least what/who we thought was being developed as such. We're fascinated to see where the show goes from here, but at the very least, it looks like they'll be gaining one great character actor.

Prolific Producer Says 'Hulk' & 'Terminator' Franchises Moving On Without HerGale Anne Hurd has had an incredibly varied (and just plain incredible) career, starting off as an executive assistant to Roger Corman before becoming one of the biggest genre producers in the business, kind of like a lady Jerry Bruckheimer. With her ex-husband James Cameron she produced "The Terminator," "Aliens," "The Abyss," and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" – big, complicated productions that set the box office on fire. In the years since 'T2' she has dabbled in comedy (the underrated Watergate romp "Dick"), family adventures ("Clockstoppers," which is sort of like the non-perverted version of Nicholson Baker's novel "The Fermata") and superhero yarns – shepherding two versions of both "The Incredible Hulk" and "The Punisher" to the big screen (with notably mixed results).

We don't cover much television here at The Playlist. Generally speaking, the magic of sitting in a dark room with a big-ass screen trumps the home experience every time. But TV news is starting to bleed across, thanks to the reams of big-screen stars, writers and directors who are moving into long-form TV work, and the line in terms of the product is starting to blur as well: "Mildred Pierce," for instance, barely qualifies as television, aside from its length, and its premiere airing on HBO. It was a highly cinematic experience, and arguably the best film of the year so far.

It seems that Edgar Wright has been on a never-ending press run for the past little while. With the run of interviews for "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" now ending -- it only recently opened in Japan -- the helmer is currently in Austin helping to get the word out about Joe Cornish's alien invasion flick "Attack The Block" which he executive produced and played to a gangbusters reception at SXSW last night (look for our review later today). While Wright is yet to decide on his followup to 'Pilgrim', in an interview with Collider, Wright revealed he's been given the chance to take another crack at zombies in one of the most acclaimed new television series of last fall.
