The dead get their wings in new AMC web series FEAR THE WALKING DEAD: FLIGHT 462
Havent gotten your fill of THE WALKING DEAD yet? Good! Because AMC just announced the launch of a new, nasty web series called FEAR THE WALKING DEAD: FLIGHT 462. The show is produced by FEAR THE WALKING DEAD showrunner and executive producer Dave Erickson and co-executive producer Davie Wiener.
From the AMC press release:
FEAR THE WALKING DEAD: FLIGHT 462 tells the story of a group of passengers aboard a commercial airplane during the earliest moments of the outbreak. Over the course of the series, the plane and the lives of its passengers are put in jeopardy once they discover an infected traveler. The series is written by L. Signorino and Mike Zunic and directed by Fear director of photography Michael McDonough.
Flight 462 is a great extension of the world of Fear and will engage fans across multiple platforms with another riveting story set at the start of the fall of civilization, said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV. We are thrilled to be collaborating with Dave Erickson and David Wiener on another piece of original content. Watching how they’ll bring one of these new characters to the second season of Fear will be really exciting for viewers to follow.
The first installment of the 16-part series will debut on AMC.com on Sunday, October 4th and will then air as promos during two commercial breaks within The Walking Dead season 6 premiere episode on Sunday, October 11th.
