H/T Hollywood Reporter:
Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd said she is more worried about gun culture than the violence in her AMC series “The Walking Dead.”
“I worry more about the fact that we have guns on the street here,” she said Feb. 11, speaking at Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film & Television, where she took part in the ongoing Hollywood Masters interview series.
“I mean, in Australia, countries around the world where they have the same entertainment, and they don’t have the homicide rates that we do here, it’s clear that there’s another reason for it. [In] all my films, the antagonists are monsters or cyborgs, or you name it. The Walking Dead is the one [that’s] different, and I found that it’s inspired a debate about what does it mean to be human and can you justify resorting to this kind of brutality?”
