The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon Writers Revealed

By CAMERON BONOMOLO - July 3, 2023 03:59 pm EDT

The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon deliberately doesn't look like The Walking Dead. As shown by the first footage from the spin-off, "The tone is much different, the [look is] much different. The lighting's different," star Norman Reedus previously told ComicBook. "We're in castles, and the storyline has a religious vibe to it. Part of the story is me around a bunch of people speaking French." If AMC's Walking Dead spin-off set in post-apocalyptic France doesn't look or sound anything like The Walking Dead, it's because there's new blood in the writers' room assembled by executive producer and showrunner David Zabel.

The ER veteran joined the NBC series in its eighth season as an executive story writer before becoming executive producer and showrunner for seasons 11ó15 of the medical drama. Zabel, whose television writing credits include episodes of JAG, Star Trek: Voyager, and Dark Angel, also developed the short-lived ABC drama Lucky 7 with Jason Richman and co-created with Lisa Q. Wolfinger the Civil War-set medical drama Mercy Street for PBS.

A listing on the Writers Guild of America database reveals the five writers who penned the six-episode first season of The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon, including Zabel, who penned the pilot episode. The newcomers to the Walking Dead Universe are Zabel's Lucky 7 and Mercy Street collaborator Richman, ER and Lucky 7 story editor Shannon Goss, Laura Snow, and French writer Coline Abert.

Episode 1 is written by Zabel, whose credits include the ABC affair drama Betrayal, crime-drama Detroit 1-8-7, and crime-drama Stumptown

Episode 2 is co-written by Zabel & Richman, who created the Cobie Smulders-led Stumptown and co-created Lucky 7 with Zabel. Along with episodes of Detroit 1-8-7 and Mercy Street, Richman wrote the 2008 films Swing Vote and Bangkok Dangerous

Episode 3 is scripted by Coline Abert, writer of the French romantic dramedy series Plus belle la vie, the French political thriller series The Bureau, and the supernatural drama Les Revenants (The Returned). Most recently, Abert penned the "Like Angels Put in Hell by God" episode of Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire for AMC

Episode 4 is written by Shannon Goss, a television veteran whose credits include episodes of ER, Harry's Law, Lucky 7, ABC drama Revenge, Reign, STARZ' Outlander, and AMC's supernatural horror anthology series The Terror

Episode 5 is written by Zabel & Richman

Episode 6 is penned by Richman & Laura Snow, a staff writer on NBC's short-lived drama Ordinary Joe, which chronicled one man's three parallel lives

The official logline: "Daryl washes ashore in France and struggles to piece together how he got there and why. The series tracks his journey across a broken but resilient France as he hopes to find a way back home. As he makes the journey, though, the connections he forms along the way complicate his ultimate plan."

Former Walking Dead showrunners and executive producers Scott M. Gimple and Angela Kang developed the series, originally planned as the Daryl & Carol spin-off starring Reedus and Melissa McBride. After Kang and McBride both exited the spin-off in April 2022, it was reworked to focus on Daryl being marooned in Europe. (McBride has since been spotted filming with Reedus in France.)

Gimple and Kang serve as executive producers on Daryl Dixon, alongside Zabel, longtime Walking Dead director-producer-makeup artist Greg Nicotero, Brian Bockrath (Fear the Walking Dead, The Walking Dead: Dead City), and Daniel Percival (The Man in the High Castle, Hot Zone).

The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon is slated to premiere this fall on AMC and AMC+.

This show and story makes no sense.

So, lets see. Morgan dumps the baby with Dwight and Sherry. Then has to leave everybody for absolute no reason. He could have holed up anywhere with the kid - or sent someone else to look after the baby on the raft.

Its splitting the characters up for no reason. I mean why would Morgan miss the battle for the tower he was so keen on just minutes before.

Its all garbage!!

I would have given this a 6 it it had stuck with the Dwight and Sherry storyline but the Morgan drivel knocks it down to 3/10

And Wes is still acting like a moron.

3 episodes of this shitshow left!

Also, considering they constantly split the characters up there is never any reunion scenes so its hard to give a damn about any of them.

Bam! Thatís what Iím talking about. I love the relationship between Sherry and Dwight. I would absolutely scream with delight if we could get them together (especially Sherry) with Daryl again. Such great chemistry!

I enjoyed it for the most part.  Loved Dwight and his dad joke, that got me.  I usually enjoy the episodes that feature Dwight.

I can't wait to get out of Texas. I want to see some sunshine and some characters I can like. Right now, it is bleak and there is not a single character I enjoy watching. They all look like they are dying.  :(

I laughed at the auto-mobile joke, that was funny.
Me too!  And it was actually really heart-warming to see Dwight making dad jokes.

I give this a 7, not a bad episode. I enjoyed the performances from all the actors here and the characters were competent. I laughed at the auto-mobile joke, that was funny. This didn't progress the story much though, so it doesnít feel like there's much here overall. Not sure what else to say about this one.
