The Walking Dead - Season 2 - Gale Anne Hurd Interview

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.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
