Talking Dead is the #1 talk show on TV and Chris Hardwick is a large part of the reason why.
Now AMC is investing Hardwick’s combination of wit, charm and pop culture knowledge by greenlighting Talking with Chris Hardwick.
Episodes of “Talking with Chris Hardwick” will feature a wide breadth of guests and highlight Hardwick’s singularly irreverent and authentic take on today’s pop culture landscape.
Talking with Chris Hardwick will premiere on Sunday, April 9th (11/10C) – the week after the current season of The Walking Dead’s finale. The show will then run weekly except during the season runs of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead.
The seventh season premiere of The Walking Dead will lead into a ninety-minute special edition of Talking Dead that will feature twelve members of the show’s cast – everyone in the cliffhanging final scene of TWD’s sixth season finale – and executive producers Scott Gimple and Robert Kirkman.
Following a screening of the season seven premiere, the show will shot live in front of an audience of 2,000 fans – who will win tickets to the event via the Talking Dead at Hollywood Forever ticket sweepstakes that will open Tuesday, October 4th at 7am (ET) at www.Talking DeadSweeps.com.
The Walking Dead and Talking Dead return on Sunday, October 23rd. For more, read on.
