AMC’s The Walking Dead spin-off Fear The Walking Dead will receive its UK premiere on the soon-to-launch AMC UK on Monday August 31st at 9pm, it has been announced.
Fear The Walking Dead is described “a gritty drama living in the same universe as The Walking Dead” that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark and English teacher Travis Manawa have managed to assemble. The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down. A forced evolution, a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold, and our dysfunctional family must either reinvent themselves or embrace their darker histories.
The companion series to TWD was created by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman & Dave Erickson and 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.. AMC Studios is producing, with Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert and Dave Erickson will also serving as an executive producers.
