‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Has New Webseries: ‘Passage’

By October 19, 2016


AMC once again will cross-promote its two zombie series with an original web series. And if you’re afraid you just don’t have enough time in the day for everything The Walking Dead, don’t worry – each episode is only a minute long.

Fear the Walking Dead: Passage is a 16-part web series designed to promote AMC’s strong but not-as-popular spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead. Each episode will pop online before the regular Sunday broadcast of The Walking Dead, except for the premiere, which already is available right here.

Scott played Anne Northrup in the Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave and has had a recurring role in ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder. Prada is a newer actress to the scene, more recently appearing in a short she co-wrote, Return to Sender.

This is the second web series to be produced to help promote Fear following last year’s Flight 462 which starred Brendan Meyer, Michelle Ang and Kathleen Gati. That series would later be nominated for an Emmy.

Dave Erickson, who also is the showrunner for Fear is in charge of Passage, which was written by Lauren Signorino and Mike Zunic, who both work in the writers room for Fear. The two also wrote Flight 462, both earning a nomination for a Writers Guild of America award.

Andrew Bernstein, who directed two episodes of Fear last year in the midst of a very busy television schedule, will helm Passage.

The Walking Dead premieres Sunday on AMC, with Fear the Walking Dead returning early next year with its third season.
