On Monday, the AMC series "The Walking Dead" will be filming scenes near the Cobb Galleria Centre for its second season. The Georgia Department of Transportation has approved road closures on Cobb Galleria Parkway from Akers Mill Road to Cumberland Boulevard; on Riverwood Parkway, from Cobb Galleria Parkway to Cobb Parkway; and at Cobb Parkway and Riverwood Parkway.
The closures are scheduled from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The county will set up two message boards, one in each direction, on Cobb Galleria Parkway alerting commuters of the closures and of a detour.
Officer Mike Bowman of the Cobb County Police Department said drivers can expect zombies and simulated gunfire in addition to the traffic delays.
Nominated for Best Drama at the 2011 Golden Globes, "The Walking Dead" stars Andrew Lincoln as Sheriff Rick Grimes, who awakes from a coma to find the world devastated by a zombie outbreak.
