It’s been almost a year since we heard about plans to create a “companion” series to AMC’s The Walking Dead, which would explore the Zombie Apocalypse in a different area of the world. Finally it is one step closer to happening with AMC giving a pilot order for the show.
We still don’t know anything about the show’s premise or location, but we do know that Dave Erickson, who helped create and write the pilot of The Walking Dead with Robert Kirkman, will be the showrunner and executive producer. The executive producing team of Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert from the parent show will also be executive producers.
Production is expected to begin in late 2014.
