It's official: AMC has ordered a talk show hosted by Chris Hardwick to air after The Walking Dead.

Talking Dead, AMC's first live aftershow, will serve as a platform for discussion about The Walking Dead. The half-hour series will premiere after the encore presentattions of the hourlong drama on Sunday, Oct. 16. Beginning on Friday, Nov. 4, Talking Dead will air following the show's encores at 11 p.m.

Talking Dead will have Hardwick, who hosts G4's Web Soup, with fans, actors and producers and taking questions and comments from viewers. Hardwick also moderated The Walking Dead panel at Comic-Con this year.

Michael Davies serves as executive producer of Talking Dead for Embassy Row. Jen Kelly serves as co-executive producer.

In August, AMC was mulling a talk show to serve as companion series to its dramas, in the vein of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.

The Walking Dead launches its second season Oct. 16 at 9 p.m. on AMC.

Give with one hand, take away with the other. Why not take the money from this and give it to the actual damn show!?

Because to networks, an hour and a half or programming for your money, is a lot better than just an hour of programming.

They've done this stuff here in the UK with shows such as 24, and for the most part, it's just fans chatting about the shows. It's usually enjoyable, if entirely pointless if you aren't interested in hearing c-list celebrities talk about their love for the episode that just aired.
