Fear The Walking Dead

As a hardcore mega fan of AMC’s The Walking Dead series, I liked the onset premise that they just threw you into the deep end of the dead pool without any back story as to how the undead came to be. (In episode “TS-19,” Dr. Edwin Jenner – the CDC’s last survivor – couldn’t answer the question, best guessing that it could be microbial, viral, or simply not washing your hands after playing with people poo. Okay, that last one is a personal theory as to why the dead have come back to get us.)

With the summer 2015 impending Fear The Walking Dead six-episode spin-off, questions are proposed and possible answers hinted as to how the world got f’d in the b-hole in the first place.

My best guessing is that they won’t reveal the inception of the dead. Once you know the answer, the rest is just running, screaming, biting, chewing, burping, farting. Then repeating all of the above. Why ruin a good thing?

What makes The Walking Dead work so well has never really been the omnipresent zombies (okay, maybe for the first few episodes), but the characters themselves and the ridiculously dark places they go with each other just to survive.

That established, Fear The Walking Dead – set in Los Angeles – has to step up hard out of the gate if they want to milk this cash cow. They can start by paying me big coupons to consult, direct and star in the series. And I’d have everyone get eaten by the undead except me, which would make me a hero of some sort.

I’ll have my agent call their agent to work out the deets.
