"The Walking Dead" Executive Producer Axes Writing Staff

Deadline is reporting that the new hit AMC series, "The Walking Dead", has terminated its entire staff of writers.

Not to worry, however. The quality of the show has been made possible, in part, to the writing of the show's executive producer, Frank Darabont. He wrote the first two episodes himself, and cleaned up the subsequent episodes, one of which wasn't even written by the writing staff, but the comic's creator.

The first two shows drew a lot of critical acclaim, but that has lessened in the weeks after.

The show, which is already a tension filled hour, will hopefully only benefit from the mass firings.

Frank Darabont is looking to use freelance writers as opposed to an actual writing staff.

"The Walking Dead" will return next season will 13 episodes.
