There are a ton of movies filmed here in Atlanta. Even some shows too. One of the most popular shows is The Walking Dead. If you don’t know, the show depicts a bunch of people who’ve survived a zombie apocalypse. I attended the mid-season premiere at Bottle Rocket this past Sunday night. In addition to zombie cocktails, zombie makeovers and autographed posters by creator Robert Kirkman, it was announced that Atlanta Movie Tours will launch its first tour in March. The Walking Dead tour will be one of the main tours with AMT.
Guests of AMT will board luxury coaches and be whisked into the world of entertainment. All tour guides are actors, crew or extras that have worked on productions here in Georgia. Guides will regale guests with commentary of never before heard behind-the-scenes stories, Q&A, and fun trivia contests with prizes during each tour. There will be two food stops during the tour, yet to be determined.
AMT will launch Spring 2012, with location tours of The Walking Dead; AMC’s immensely popular show, all filmed in and around Atlanta. Tony Gowell, the only member of the undead in both TWD seasons, joins AMT as Talent Consultant and Tour Guide. Tony’s dedication to The Walking Dead and his involvement in many other productions in town, including Dragon*Con, position him as the perfect choice to bring movies & television shows to life for Atlanta’s visitors, and entertainment buffs in general.
