Gwyneth Horder-Payton is second of two women directing TV's 'The Walking Dead'

With two women on board as directors for the first season, The Walking Dead could herald a more progressive horror series in more ways than one.

We've been super excited about The Walking Dead here at Fgt, mostly because it means I don't have to go out on Halloween this year because I'm a lazy bitch, and also because the TV horror series will have input from female directors like Michelle Maxwell MacLaren (who also directed the horror film Population 436.) It's been released that MacLaren's episode is the second in the first season.

What's even better news is that episode 3 is directed by another woman - Gwyneth Horder-Payton. Horder-Payton has directed genre TV like Battlestar Galactica (episode "No Exit") and Fringe ("The Equation"). Her episode of Walking Dead is titled "Fresh Meat", while MacLaren's is "Dead Man's Identity".

These people were at least partially responsible for the train wreck known as Knowing (they share credit with Ryne Douglas Pearson and Stuart Hazeldine), and I cannot imagine entrusting such classics as Poltergeist and The Birds to them. On the other hand, if by chance they were involved with scripting the few enjoyable parts of Knowing (i.e., before all parties involved lost control of themselves), then maybe
