11 'The Walking Dead' Season 7 Spoilers to Know Before the Premiere

Those pencil-pushing stats are important to know because season one of the show was run by Shawshank Redemption director Frank Darabont, who ended up getting canned by AMC halfway through season two of The Walking Dead.

Darabont, who directed the film The Shawshank Redemption, was sacked by AMC halfway through The Walking Dead's second season.

Darabont's suit claims AMC stiffed him on Dead profits by continuing to produce the series while licensing it to its cable affiliate for "not enough money", with THR noting that Darabont's contract entitled him to as much as 10 percent on certain Dead guap after deductions. He also says AMC unfairly lowered his share of the profits by designating him as not fully involved in Season 2, while he insists he was involved in all of the episodes that season, in some capacity. Darabont and his Creative Artists Agency agents filed a certificate of trial readiness Monday showing that they intend to seek more than $280 million in damages.

If the judge, Justice Eileen Bransten, allows the AMC vs. Darabont case to continue, the next step could be a trial and that might be a long time off.

And now Darabont wants to be paid for kicking off The Walking Dead's massive success. During the Walking Dead panel at this summer's San Diego Comic-Con, star Andrew Lincoln confirmed that viewers would discover which character has been killed during the premiere episode.
