'Fear The Walking Dead' Gives Us A Plot Synopsis And A New Clip
Ok! Ok! I'll fear them. FINE. In the past few months, we've learned a little bit more about that Walking Dead spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead. We learned its name, we got a rough idea of plot, its shooting location, and a few casting announcements. And a new trailer released by AMC not only confirms all that we've learned, but offers up a look at the production design of the new series as well, albeit a terribly limited one. It's not all that enlightening, but it's a start. Considering the premiere of the show lands in August, we should get more and more of these clips to get the hype machine going. And they were nice enough to issue a plot synopsis as well: A companion series to “The Walking Dead,” the #1 show on television among adults 18-49, “Fear the Walking Dead” takes us back to the beginning of the zombie apocalypse – a time when the world was changing rapidly for reasons unknown, before anyone understood exactly what was happening, when life as everyone knew it was upended and altered in ways no one could have ever imagined. “Fear the Walking Dead” is executive produced by Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert and showrunner David Erickson and produced by AMC Studios. The series, set in Los Angeles, stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Elizabeth Rodriguez as Liza, Ruben Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia and Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris. Again, more confirmation than "news," but it's nice to know that there will be zombies in this one, too.
