(From Geektyrant) AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead looks like it will be a really freakin’ good show! The first full trailer for it was released during Comic-Con, and it has awesome potential. The first season of the show takes place during the period of time when Rick from The Walking Dead is in a coma. The companion series will lead up to the point where Rick wakes up in the hospital.
AMC has released a new promo poster featuring a couple kids playing basketball in Los Angeles as a zombie approaches them.
The series stars Cliff Curtis as Travis, “a teacher who shares a son with his ex-wife and is involved with guidance counselor Madison (Kim Dickens). Frank Dillane co-stars as Nancy’s drug-addicted son, Nick; Alycia Debnam Carey is Madison’s ambitious daughter, Alicia, Nick’s polar opposite who dreams of leaving L.A. for Berkeley when the apocalypse strikes. Elizabeth Rodriguez (Liza, an aspiring nurse who is Travis’ ex-wife), Lorenzo James Henrie (Chris, Travis’ son), Ruben Blades (Daniel Salazar) and Mercedes Mason (Daniel’s daughter, Ofelia).”
The show premieres this summer on August 23rd.
