What’s the process of picking and choosing characters from the book vs. creating your own for the show? Especially regard to Hershel’s family, how does the storytelling produce a need that you either look to the books to fill with a character, or you decide “well, we’re going to create our own.”
Gale Anne Hurd: It depends, because when you map out the season, you need to draw from a well of stories and the stories come from character first, so there are…and at the same time in a TV series, you have too many characters so you can’t service all the stories, which is why we tend to have fewer characters in the show than perhaps there are in the comic books. We knew that we wanted to go to Hershel’s farm, and we also knew that we wanted to make sure Hershel and Maggie were characters this season, and we essentially went from there.

By the time Frank Darabont departed, nine episodes of the season had already been written. Does new showrunner Glenn Mazzara have any different approach when it comes to pulling from the comics?
Gale Anne Hurd: No. You’ve got to remember that Robert Kirkman is in the writer’s room every day. The function of a writers’ room is a very democratic experience, obviously one person has to make the final decision, but there’s a lot of debate that goes on. Robert’s voice of course is very significant in the process.
