‘Walking Dead’ To Debut On MNT This Fall
AMC’s The Walking Dead will make its broadcast TV debut this fall as part of the MyNetworkTV lineup.
The plan calls for MNT to run two previously aired episodes of the series one night per week, according to an annoucement.
“We are fired up that MyNetworkTV will be the exclusive broadcast home to The Walking Dead,” says Twentieth Television President Greg Meidel “As we enter the 2014 upfronts, the blockbuster program, which breaks the mold of conventional television, further enhances Twentieth Television’s media sales slate of hit comedies, dramas and first-run programming.”
The Walking Dead is currently the number one series on television among viewers 18-49, across all cable and broadcast networks, and the number one cable drama series of all time, according to Fox.
“This agreement extends the reach of the number one show on television among adults 18-49 by giving viewers primetime access to The Walking Dead with back-to-back episodes on broadcast television one night a week,” says AMC President Charlie Collier. “The Walking Dead has grown in each of its first four seasons on AMC, and we look forward to exposing this compelling story and these unforgettable characters to new fans on MyNetworkTV.”
