Walking Dead Ratings, “Nemesis” Developed

AMC closed out the first half of the fourth season of “The Walking Dead” last night with 12.1 million viewers tuning in for the episode.

That’s up 15% on last year’s mid-season finale, while the season so far has averaged 13 million viewers – up 29% from the first half of season three. The show returns in February and here’s the trailer (be warned, spoilers for the finale).

Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are developing “Nemesis,” an eight-hour miniseries adaptation of William Bernhardt’s book about famed Prohibition agent Eliot Ness, for NBC. The story follows a post-Untouchables era Ness when he was Cleveland’s Director of Public Safety.

The population becomes terrorized by America’s first serial killer, the so-called ‘Torso Killer’. who is leaving decapitated bodies in his wake. Ness takes over the case, but soon the case takes over his life.
