    Eat your brains out, Don Draper.

    Production began this week in Atlanta for AMC's adaption of "The Walking Dead," which promises to be a great zombie-fest -- and more than welcome on a network best known for "Mad Men."

    They feel it's a perfect fit (even if Don Draper is a lot easier to look at).

    "We hope to do for zombies what 'Mad Men' has done for advertising,"  writer/director Frank Darabont says in a promotional video for the six-part series.

    Just to make sure their monsters pass the zombie sniff test, the network released this photo of the flesh-eating creatures. Yup, smells like zombie. Please don't get this close to actual zombies at home.

    The series is based on Robert Kirkman's best-selling comic "The Walking Dead."
