Details On Walking Dead Spin Off Pilot


Can’t get enough of zombie survival series The Walking Dead?  Well a spin off series is in the works, a pilot at least.  TV director Adam Davidson will helm the first episode.  His credits include Lost, Dexter, True Blood Deadwood and others.  Davidson actually snagged the Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film back in 1991 for “The Lunch Date”.

Not much is known about this show.  But some character details are available.

  • Sean Cabrera – A Latino male in his early 40s, Sean is a good man trying to do right by everyone in his life.
  • Cody Cabrera – Sean’s whip-smart and rebellious teenage son.  Known as the angriest kid in town.
  • Nancy Tompkins – A thirtysomething single mom to two kids, Nancy looks like the girl next door, but there’s an edge to her.
  • Nick Tompkins – Nancy’s screwed up teenage son.  He’s too old to stay at home, too scared to flee.
  • Ashley Tompkins – Nancy’s mostly level-headed teenage daughter.  Her ambition is in direct proportion to her older brother’s failures.  She loves her mom but it’s time to get out of Dodge.
  • Andrea Chapman – A somewhat wilted flower child, fortysomething Andrea—yep, another Andrea!—has retreated to the outskirts of the city to recover after a horrible marriage.

The show will apparently focus mainly on two families.  While we’re at it, with the main series, Andrew Lincoln has hyped something different happening for the finale of season five:

 “I think the first three episodes are pretty much a body blow—three is an astonishingly brutal and uncompromising episode. But then the story kind of spins off. But I would say that nine, ten, and eleven . . . and twelve . . . actually, the whole season is pretty intense. I’m trying to sort of temper it, but I can’t. It moves very quickly. Lots of new locations, a heck of a lot of new characters. But it is a season where maybe two-thirds has this momentum and this drive, and then the final third is like a completely new show.”

So then, no slowing down for the zombie genre.  Next year comes Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Maggie” and hopefully some real movement on that Living Dead prequel.  I would hazard a guess on a second World War Z announcement also.
