This Buckhead church building was converted into a bright family home

The Walking Dead gets a new showrunner for season 9

by Myrydd Wells @ Atlanta Magazine

Whatever your opinions on this season of The Walking Dead, the AMC zombie drama is still a juggernaut hit for the cable network, so this weekend's announcement that the show had been renewed for a ninth season was hardly a surprise. More interesting is the fact that Scott Gimple will be stepping down as showrunner, with writer and co-executive producer Angela Kang taking the helm.

Watching The Post, it’s easy to sign onto the film’s barely veiled, metaphoric rebuke of Donald Trump’s assault on the First Amendment and the free press.
