is reporting that Glen Mazzara has become the writing executive producer and the second in charge behind creator, executive producer and director Frank Darabont for the second season of "The Walking Dead."
Mazzara is also in charge of putting together a writing staff of five writers for the show. This turn of event is happening after Darabont disbanded the writing staff, including writing executive producer Charles “Chic” Eglee. Eglee was second in charge at the time. Darabont wanted to try and run the show just with freelance writers but the show has reverting to the traditional writing staff model with a staff comparable or a little bigger in size to Season 1 whose order was for 6 episodes vs. 13 for Season 2.
