Highly anticipated TV series based upon the comic book series of the same name finds its way to BitTorrent. tracker sites everywhere well ahead of it official Halloween premiere.
Today is an early Christmas, or Halloween, as the case may be, as it appears that a PREAIR of the first episode of the highly anticipated The Walking Dead TV series has leaked to BitTorrent tracker sites everywhere. The episode is scheduled to premiere on the AMC network on October 31st during the network’s “Fearfest.”
The series is based upon the monthly black and white American comic book series first published back in 2003 and lasting 24 issues.
“Waking up in an empty hospital after weeks in a coma, County Sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) finds himself utterly alone,” reads a brief explanation of the story’s plotline. “The world as he knows it is gone, ravaged by a zombie epidemic. The Walking Dead tells the story of the weeks and months that follow after the apocalypse.”
The series is written and produced by Frank Darabont, three-time Academy Award-nominee for his work directing The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, and more recently, The Mist. He reportedly directed the premiere episode as well as three episodes that follow.
This not the first time that PREAIR episodes of a TV series have leaked to BitTorrent. A few years back it was the “Sarah Connor Chronicles” as well as “Jericho,” “Traveler,” “Caprica,” and a number of others.
