The real question is: What kind of stories are there for Fear the Walking Dead to explore in the long-term that have not already been tackled by The Walking Dead itself?
On August 23, “Fear the Walking Dead” will make its cable network debut, and fans of the original series will get their first glimpse into the time period that was known as the “incubation”, marked by the rise of the “Walkers”. Fear the Walking Dead will center around the lives of everyday people from Los Angeles as they try to cope with the beginning of an apocalypse. 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. Madison is engaged to Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) who is a high school English teacher.

Here’s a much longer look behind and in-front-of the scenes from AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead. These are the trailers and behind-the-scenes video clips that you have to see before the new TV series starts. “It’s Man Vs. the Even More Terrifying Specter of some unknown but poisonous shadow that man very slowly realizes could darken and destroy everything we value”. By premiering late in the season, AMC will take the six-episode first season to October, where it will hand the baton to “The Walking Dead“.
