We started The Walking Dead nearly a month in as Rick wakes up from his coma.
Fear The Walking Dead is the spinoff of AMC’s super-popular, smash hit, The Walking Dead, which is heading to it’s sixth season.
What was your favorite part about being on set?
You may have to fear the walking dead, but you don’t have to fear the show’s spectacular cast. The first season will feature six episodes.
“By the time we end season one, there’s still a window of time and a window of exploration”. He was the only one brought back from the original team. “All they know is their neighbor is acting really unusual and looks like they want to eat them”. “We structured the season in a way that they’re still somewhat insulated from the greater truth of what’s going on”. We have an opportunity to explore things that are not normally seen in this genre. That’s sort of the opposite of scavenging. I think we’ll come out of the gate strong and then hopefully people will recognize that there are differences. To a large degree, that’s not necessarily folks who realize it’s on and we’ve got to stash up. Instead, the action takes place in El Sereno, a neighborhood in East Los Angeles. Nick, since their father passed away, has kind of gone off the rails.
As the first-generation American daughter of Daniel and Griselda, Ofelia wants very different things out of life than her parents do.
“There was blood… yeah, and it’s all over her mouth”, he tells his stepfather from a hospital bed hours later. They’ve experienced death because they lost their dad.
“The secret sauce of these shows is that the audience likes to experience through the characters an avatar/surrogate type relationship that they can wonder what it would be like to be in their shoes; which is a lot easier to do when they can empathise with these characters”. She is the ex-wife of Travis. Take Madison, for example, who Dickens says “just has her own mama-bear instincts”. They didn’t walk in, like, looking down at their noses like, “Oh, what are you doing?”
The short answer for those curious about “Fear the Walking Dead” is that it’s so far removed from the plotline of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) – and the rest of the characters that viewers are familiar with – that people don’t need to know much going in. “We have some real estate left”, he continued.
“When he and I first sat down, he had already decided on Los Angeles”, Erickson explains. We may be exploring cities adjacent.
“Colonel Kurtz embraces a belief system that for us is inhumane and immoral, but it makes total sense to him”, continued Erickson.
I am also on Orange is the New Black and so we are in the middle of shooting season four. I don’t think you can watch our show and even compare us to the other one. I think it’s a blessing.
Is that the heart of this stage of the epidemic, that morality of when to help your neighbor and when to protect yourself and your family?
Oh, definitely. Yes, absolutely. Let’s hope the storytelling picks up soon, to keep this series from turning into another shambling TV zombie that needs to be put down. The Playboy bunnies in the middle of the army camp.
