'Walking Dead' Stuntman's Mother Files Lawsuit Accusing AMC of Cutting Corners

The mother of the Walking Dead stuntman who passed away on the show’s set last year is now filing a lawsuit against AMC.

John Bernecker died after falling head-first onto a concrete floor from 22-feet above and his mother Susan says the network cut corners when it came to safety precautions.

Susan is accusing AMC of putting profits ahead of safety and skimping on the show’s stunt budget.

She says the network did not provide adequate cushioning beneath the balcony, did not ensure that the scene was rehearsed and did not have an ambulance on scene.

“The AMC defendants orchestrated and enforced a pattern of filming and producing The Walking Dead cheaply and ultimately unsafely. As part of this emphasis, the AMC defendants pressured Stalwart Films to maintain unreasonably low budgets and expenses for episodes, including the budget allotted to stunts. Accordingly, the production of The Walking Dead repeatedly cut corners on safety precautions,” the suit reads.

In a statement, AMC commented on their safety standards.

“Our thoughts and prayers are and have been with John Bernecker, his family, friends and everyone touched by this tragic accident since the moment it occurred. We take the safety of our employees on all of our sets extremely seriously, and meet or exceed industry safety standards. Out of respect for the family, we will have no further comment on this litigation,” the network said.

'Walking Dead' Renewed for Season 9, New Showrunner Announced

The Walking Dead is officially coming back for a ninth season on AMC and a new showrunner has been announced.

Scott M. Gimple, the show’s showrunner from season four through eight, will now serve as the chief content officer of the franchise. Angela Kang has been promoted from executive producer to showrunner.

“This is an enormously important day for the entire The Walking Dead television universe. We are proud to acknowledge Angela‘s significant contribution to the series and to set a clear path forward for a ninth season under her direction. Further, with gratitude and admiration, we also recognize Scott‘s broad impact on, and leadership of, the content that fuels our TWD universe. Together, we will dream bigger and more broadly than ever before,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios (via THR). “I know I speak for Angela, Scott and everyone at AMC when I say thanks most of all to the fans and the many talented people who have helped AMC play Dead.”

Angela has been working on The Walking Dead since 2011 and has written about 20 episodes of the series. The show will return in late 2018.

Norman Reedus Reveals How 'The Walking Dead' Is Affected By Killing Off Characters

Norman Reedus holds a cherry in his mouth on the cover of EW‘s The Walking Dead preview!

In the mag, the 49-year-old actor spoke about how the show is effected when key characters are killed off.

“The people that started this show, to me, are the heart of the show,” Norman said. “When you lose those key members, it’s such a big blow to the show, and to the fans, and to us that are there. Who’s left? There’s only a few of us left out of all those people. If you wanted to turn it into a totally different show, you get rid of those people. But if you want to hold on to what made the show special, you’ve got to be very careful what you do with those people.”
