Creator of The Walking Dead Spinoff reveals everything is going to be different
The Walking Dead’s spinoff series, aka Cobalt is ramping up production as we speak. According to reports, things will be very different than the Atlanta based TV series. This new series will take place in Los Angeles, and instead of walking through the woods, we can expect to see zombies crawling through audition rooms.
I will say that this is going to be a show about family. But it’s going to be a show about a different type of family that we haven’t explored in The Walking Dead thus far. So what we’re trying to do with The Walking Dead spinoff is keep the story as familiar as possible for people that love The Walking Dead, so you’ll get the kind of things that you expect from a Walking Dead story. But, at the same time, we’ll want to tell these stories in a completely different way with completely different people in a completely different setting that’s going to make for a fundamentally different show. I think the look and feel of The Walking Dead spinoff is going to be startlingly different. [via]
The new location for the Cobalt will allow for several different storylines and even zombie celebrities. But, what is the most important part of the interview is that the new series will be able to stand on its own, separate from the original series.
You could watch The Walking Dead spinoff if you’ve never watched an episode of The Walking Dead and get a really great, rich, fulfilling experience out of it. It has to be a show that can stand on its own. I think that’s what we’ve accomplished, and we start filming in a couple of days. I’m really excited.
The new series will air next year and we are looking forward to zombie celebrities!
