1. It will take place in Los Angeles, and as a result, we may see a few “sexy” zombies.
2. It will begin during the time in which Rick is in a coma on The Walking Dead and focus on the initial outbreak of the zombie virus. It will basically show us what the world looked like as it was transforming into the horrifying apocalypse depicted in The Walking Dead.
3. It will NOT reveal the source of the outbreak.
4. It will have a “very different” vibe from The Walking Dead in tone and approach. It will also look different, as it will be filmed digitally instead of on film.
5. It will focus on an entirely new set of characters. Its core cast will include Kim Dickens as high-school teacher Madison; Cliff Curtis as guidance counselor Travis; Frank Dillane as Madison’s troubled son, Nick; and Alycia Debnam-Carey as her daughter, Alicia.
