AMC's smash hit series the "Walking Dead" is one of the biggest things on cable and economic uncertainty may be one reason why, creator Robert Kirkman told CNBC on Friday.
"I've always felt zombies didn't really get their due. As far as movie monsters go you see a lot of vampires, werewolf stuff. And it's just now zombies are getting recognized being as cool as they actually are," Kirkman said.
Kirkman was always a huge fan of zombie fiction. Up until the 'Walking Dead' came out, there had never been a zombie show that actually followed a group of characters through this kind of world.
