LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – “The Walking Dead” is about to look more like “Night of the Living Dead.”

AMC is devoting the weekend of July 7-8 to a “Walking Dead” marathon that will include a special black-and-white version of the series pilot, created for fans of “The Walking Dead” comic book.

The marathon, a week before Comic-Con in San Diego, begins at 11:30 a.m. each day and includes all 19 episodes of the zombie drama’s first two seasons. It will also include a special primetime episode of the series’ aftershow, the Chris Hardwick-hosted “Talking Dead,” and a look at the upcoming third season of “The Walking Dead.”

Hardwick will introduce each installment from the set of season three in Atlanta.

The weekend will also feature cast interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.

The hour-long “Talking Dead” special on July 8 was shot live in Los Angeles, and will include a scene from season three, interviews with the cast, a tour of the new sets (the prison?) and a look at the props and wardrobe from the new season.
