AMC teams with Anchor Bay Entertainment for The Walking Dead

AMC and Anchor Bay Entertainment announced today that Anchor Bay Entertainment will distribute AMC’s original hit series, The Walking Dead, on Blu-ray™ and DVD in the U.S. and Canada. I personally couldn’t think of a better company to distribute the series. Anchor Bay has a great reputation of releasing quality products for feature films, children’s entertainment, fitness, TV series, documentaries, anime and more. They take pride in their releases and are always sure to respect the filmmaker’s work. You can be sure to expect some great bonus material since Anchor Bay usually packs in their DVD’s and Blu-ray with as much special features as possible. Here is a snippet from the press release today:

“The Walking Dead” premiered on AMC on Sunday, October 31st – Halloween night and its debut reigns as the biggest series debut in cable’s history among Adults 18-49 with 4.2 million*. The series is based on the comic book written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. Season one consists of six, one-hour episodes. Today’s announcement was made jointly by Bill Clark, President of Anchor Bay Entertainment and Marci Wiseman, Senior Vice President of Business Affairs for AMC.*Source: Nielsen Media Research.
