Fear The Walking Dead (Spinoff Series)
« on: Oct 09, 2013 at 10:45 AM »
The new series will give writers the freedom to develop characters, locations, and storylines without concern that viewers will guess or have expectations for certain plot lines based on what has already happened in the "Walking Dead" graphic novel series.

The new series could be set in a different time frame, several years down the road (in a post-post-apocalyptic world?); or maybe it'll be a prequel, with specifics on how the zombified world came to be. Maybe, a la "World War Z," it will tell the survival stories of various groups of people, from various parts of the country/world?

Like Telltale Games' award-winning adventure game, the untitled TV sidequel will follow another group of strangers thrown together by the zombie apocalypse and forced to rely on each other to survive. It seems designed to answer viewers' questions about what's happening elsewhere in the world beyond what we see on the original show. One rumor suggests that it might be set a little earlier in the timeline, possibly even following the drama of the zombie infection's origins at the CDC and their (obviously failed) efforts to contain it.

Hopefully it will be in a more urban setting, like Los Angeles, Chicago, or even Boston. I'm sick of southern locales with small towns surrounded by forests, heh

Cliff Curtis has been cast as the male lead in The Walking Dead companion series for AMC. A New Zealand actor of Maori descent, Curtis was previously seen on the TV series Missing and Gang Related.

In the companion series, now code-named Cobalt, Curtis plays a divorced teacher who joins up with a female guidance counselor and her two children as the zombie apocalypse hits, taking place in the same world as The Walking Dead series but at a much farther, more urban location.

Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm) will play the children of the female guidance counselor, who will be played by Kim Dickens.

Setting confirmed to be in Los Angeles, and will take place before and during the outbreak, showing how authorities tried to contain it.

Cliff Curtis is a great pick ...... has always been underrated, but makes his small roles count.

I completely agree that this spinoff would give freedom to the writers / producers ...... free from the burden when your show parallels a well-followed graphic novel.

Aside from a few added characters, tweaks, side stories, etc the TV series generally follows the graphic novel.

What I meant by being free of the burden, writers now can create from the ground up.

Not that its a bad thing, but TWD people are being pestered by followers of the novel so much ex. Speculation that the big guy in the Terminus boxcar was Negan.

Indeed, if this can be a quick series like the 1st season of TWD ...... more power to it.

Robert Kirkman explains how the companion show is different from the main series:

Quote
"From the beginning of the show one thing we've heard is, 'What's going on over here or there.' So the intent of the new show is to expand that world and show another corner of the United States and what's happening there. The timeline is taking place a little bit earlier timeframe than the original show. Rick Grimes woke up from a coma and was like, 'Oh, man, zombies, weird!' We're going to possibly see that unfold a little more in the other show. But I wouldn't call it 'prequel' because the entirety of the show is not going take place before [The Walking Dead]. It will eventually form a path running concurrently."


Also:

Quote
"One thing that we're doing with the new show that we're trying with everything is it's not derivative," he said. "It's standing on its own. You can watch it by itself and get your own experience. But if you are watching both shows there are things like, 'Oh they discovered this, or they discovered that in a different way.' There are a lot of things about The Walking Dead world these characters have to learn or figure out to get by. And there may be some things that are discovered in the companion show that haven't been discovered in the other show yet. So there could be like a thing where, 'Oh, they encountered a zombie in season 4 in The Walking Dead that could do this and now we know why that was.' So we're going to be doing things like that are going to be pretty cool, but for the most part [the two shows] should be able to stand alone."

What I'm really looking forward to seeing in this companion series is the start of the pandemic, and how the general public and government attempt to deal with it...something like the scenes shown at the start of World War Z and the prologue of The Last of Us (PS3 game). In the main series, we didn't get to see this because when Rick woke up, some considerable time has passed since the sh!t hit the fan.

Is it the official title already? I preferred the other proposed title: Cobalt.

As lame as it sounds, Siguro from a marketing standpoint, hindi talaga nila bibitawan yung "Walking Dead" sa title.
