‘Fear The Walking Dead’ To Focus On The Anxiety Of A Zombie Apocalypse

Apparently the show will focus on "anxiety and anticipation" rather than going "full-zombie".

In a new interview with TV Line ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ show-runner Dave Erickson discussed some of the ways that this spin-off from ‘The Walking Dead‘ was different.

Apparently the show will focus on “anxiety and anticipation” rather than going “full-zombie”.

“There’s a bit more of a slow-burn to the story. We don’t get to a point where we’re actually in a full-blown apocalypse until much later in the show.

“[Fellow EP] Robert [Kirkman] wanted to really dwell on what it’s like to [commit] a violent act – especially in our world, because it’s so early, and our walkers are fresher and far more human.

“It’s [emotionally] difficult to kill them, even when somebody’s coming after you… In terms of emotional tension, when we put one of our characters through a moment where they have to commit some brutality to defend themselves or others, they’ll suffer for it.”

‘Fear The Walking Dead’ will focus on Nancy Tomkins (Kim Dickens) and her family (Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam-Carey) trying to navigate a city overrun by zombies.

The series will also feature ‘Body of Proof‘s’ Cliff Curtis, ‘Orange Is the New Black’ star Elizabeth Rodriguez and ‘Chuck’ actress Mercedes Mason in supporting roles.
