After turning their particular brand of comedy upon the worlds of Star Wars and DC Comics, Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken is now going to do a special dedicated to the living and dead from AMC’s The Walking Dead.
Robot Chicken: The Walking Dead Special will see Seth Green, Matthew Senreich and the rest of the Robot Chicken crew team up with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and the series showrunner Scott M. Gimple to create animated skits based upon the zombie filled property.
Robot Chicken: The Walking Dead Special
In keeping with the tradition of working with major franchises such as Star Wars and DC Comics universe, the Emmy Award®-winning team behind Robot Chicken joins forces with the executive producers of The Walking Dead to bring fans an all new and extra bloody half-hour special. Robot Chicken creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, their Stoopid Buddy Stoodios partners, John Harvatine IV and Eric Towner, and executive producers/head writers Tom Root and Doug Goldstein, will bring an animated zombie apocalypse to Adult Swim with The Walking Dead’s creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman and showrunner, executive producer and writer Scott M. Gimple.
Kirkman actually appeared as himself during a 2012 episode of Robot Chicken for a segment titled “Zombie Love” that poked at the hit AMC series.
Currently there is no word on when Adult Swim will air the half-hour special.
