AMC's Fear The Walking Dead — Sneak Peek Clip: 'Nick's Escape'


added: Fri, Jun 19th '15

Though it leaves a lot to be desired, the first actual footage from AMC's new zombie spinoff series "Fear the Walking Dead" has been released.

In this brief sneak peek clip, we see a young male character, named "Nick," literally running for his life as he makes a frantic escape from what we can only assume is a horde of zombies. Nick, by the way, is played by English actor Frank Dillane, who's probably best known for playing the 16-year-old Tom Riddle in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," but will also appear in theaters later in the year in Ron Howard's Moby Dick-related drama "In the Heart of the Sea."

A companion series to "The Walking Dead," "Fear" is set in Los Angeles, and follows a new group of human survivors during the onset of the zombie outbreak. In addition to Dillane, the cast includes Cliff Curtis (Whale Rider), Kim Dickens (Gone Girl), Alycia Debnam-Carey (Into the Storm), Elizabeth Rodriguez (Orange Is the New Black) and Ruben Blades (Safe House).

The series will premiere in August on AMC. Meanwhile, fans can expect the show to make a big promotional appearance next month at Comic-Con.

What did the world look like as it was transforming into the horrifying apocalypse depicted in "The Walking Dead"? This spin-off set in Los Angeles, following new characters as they face the beginning of the end of the world, will answer that question.
