AMC Releases First Look at ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ (VIDEO)

The Walking Dead spin-off, the poorly named Fear the Walking Dead — which is also a prequel of sorts — premieres this August. To get you excited, AMC has offered a first look at the series premiere.

In the teaser promo (below) character Nick played by semi-shirtless Frank Dillane (Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) narrowly escapes the walking dead. And now he fears them. Nailed it.

“Fear the Walking Dead,” which is set in Los Angeles and focuses on new characters and storylines, stars Kim Dickens (Gone Girl, “Sons of Anarchy”) as Madison, Cliff Curtis (“Missing,” “Gang Related”) as Travis, Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) as Nick and Alycia Debnam-Carey (Into the Storm) as Alicia. Also joining the cast as series regulars are Elizabeth Rodriguez (“Orange is the New Black”) as Liza and Mercedes Mason (Quarantine 2: Terminal) as Ofelia.”

“A companion series to “The Walking Dead,” the #1 show on television among adults 18-49, “Fear the Walking Dead” is executive produced by Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert and showrunner David Erickson and produced by AMC Studios. Co-Executive Producer Adam Davidson, who directed the pilot, is also directing the second and third episodes. The series’ first season, consisting of six one-hour episodes, will premiere on AMC in late summer.”
