A brand new featurette has been released for The Walking Dead: Season One, which will hit the shelves on Blu-ray and DVD March 8. Click on the video player below to watch this excerpt from the bonus features which describes how the show was adapted from the comic book series by Robert Kirkman.

Nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Television Series - Drama, The Walking Dead: Season One breathes new life into the zombie genre as it unfolds a post-apocalyptic saga that follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln, Love Actually), who searches for a safe haven and, hopefully, a new home, far from the undead that now roam the earth hungry for human flesh. Each episode explores the challenges of life in a world overrun by zombies, and the toll it takes on the survivors who now find themselves going to extremes just to see another day. In this horrific world gone mad, each turn brings new surprises and dangers, as the survivors try to regain some semblance of a normal life.
