Pasadena, CA - January 14, 2012 - AMC announced today, from the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California, premiere dates for new and returning original series in Q1 and Q2 2012, including the critically acclaimed dramas "Mad Men," "The Killing" and "The Walking Dead," as well as its unscripted series "Talking Dead" and "Comic Book Men."

Following are additional details on AMC's early 2012 premieres:

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 12

The critically acclaimed second season of "The Walking Dead" returns at 9pm ET/PT with the new episode, "Nebraska." February 12 also marks the return of AMC's live after show, "Talking Dead," at midnight ET.

Also, for the first time, "The Walking Dead" fans can participate in a live, interactive experience online while watching new season two episodes on AMC. "The Walking Dead" StorySync on amctv.com invites viewers to vote in polls, answer trivia questions and relive tense moments via video clips - all timed to coincide with the premiere broadcast of the series' latest episode. Think Shane should have stayed away from the barn? Vote in StorySync's "Judgment" poll and see if fellow fans agree. See a particularly gruesome walker kill? Rank it on the "Gore Gauge." And, as always, a live "Watch & Chat" for each episode lets visitors join the ongoing commentary fueled by fellow rabid fans. (StorySync is optimized for both Internet browsers and tablet devices.)

"The Walking Dead" season two continues to deliver the strongest telecasts for any drama in basic cable history against Adults 18-49. The series' international premieres delivered equally impressive results in all major international TV markets, and broke pay-TV ratings' records across the world. The series is led by a cast that includes Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn, Steven Yeun, Chandler Riggs and Norman Reedus.

Immediately following "The Walking Dead" is the premiere of AMC's newest unscripted series, "Comic Book Men," at 10pm ET/PT. Executive produced by Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy), Charlie Corwin's Original Media ("LA Ink," "Storm Chasers") and Elyse Seiden (Red State), the series (formerly titled "Secret Stash") is set in Smith's iconic comic shop Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, and captures the world of the neighborhood comic book store and fanboy culture. The season consists of 6 one-hour episodes.
