AMC president Charlie Collier and head of original programming Joel Stillerman flew to the set on Thursday to meet with the cast and crew and keep production moving along on season 2. It's reported that the cast and crew are upset about Darabont's departure so this trip makes sense. It is understandable that they would want ot hear from the execs why Darabont was fired. We shared a story about budget cuts which were a huge cause for the tension between Darabont and AMC execs. AMC had even gone as far as suggestion to shoot more scenes indoors to cut corners.
