Hurd's days now are consumed by zombies as she is currently one of the executive producers on AMC's wildly successful series "The Walking Dead." During the recent 2012 San Diego Comic-Con convention, Dread Central had the opportunity to sit down for an exclusive chat with Hurd. During our interview we of course spoke to Hurd in-depth about "The Walking Dead": what fans can expect going into Season Three, more on the new and returning characters that fans of the comic series should definitely look forward to and the lowdown on the animatronic zombies that KNB will be using during next season.
Harlan Ellison, famed science-fiction author and writer of the television series The Outer Limits , accused James Cameron of stealing ideas and material from Ellison's stories I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream , The Demon With a Glass Hand , and Soldier (the latter of which were episodes from The Outer Limits ). Cameron insists to this day that the concept of The Terminator was his idea and his alone, though he admits that The Outer Limits was an influence while writing. To avert a lawsuit, production companies Hemdale and Orion settled the issue outside of court, and a new titlecard was inserted into the credits of The Terminator : "Acknowledgment to the works of Harlan Ellison."   This acknowledgement was also featured in the fronts of the T2: Infiltrator , T2: Rising Storm and T2: The Future War novels.
