AMC’s mega-popular zombie drama series “The Walking Dead” has been re-imagined 1980s-style, giving it an upbeat theme tune common to the TV era of that time.
The parody (see video above) was premiered on last week’s The Wil Wheaton Project, the “fast-paced, light-hearted” TV show dedicated to the “exploration and celebration of all things within the realm of science fiction and genre entertainment.” Hosted by Wil Wheaton, the TV show is currently airing on Syfy each Tuesday.
It was introduced by Wil Wheaton and The Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick:
In the 80s, nearly every show had an iconic theme song that told you everything you needed to know about the show. We at The Wil Wheaton Project thought that The Walking Dead needed to have one, so we made it.
For Walking Dead fans, Dread Central summed it up perfectly: “This is comedy gold!”
Season 5 of The Walking Dead is currently in production and is due to debut in October 2014. The Talking Dead is AMC’s live talk show, where Hardwick discusses episodes of the drama series celebrity fans, cast and crew members.
Television and cinematic Zombie-fests are very much in vogue — just a small selection of which includes Dominic Mitchell’s In the Flesh, The CW’s iZombie and the recently announced I Survived a Zombie Apocalypse.
Season 2 of In the Flesh, starring Luke Newberry, Emily Bevan and Emmett J Scanlon, concludes this week, while iZombie is set to premiere sometime in the 2014–15 schedule.
