Fear the Walking Dead is an AMC companion series to the hugely popular AMC show "The Walking Dead." The newer program, Fear the Walking Dead, is the brainchild of Robert Kirkman, the writer of the Walking Dead comic book series. Fear the Walking Dead is set in Los Angeles, California and, like the Walking Dead, follows the lives of survivors battling through a zombie apocalypse. Unlike The Walking Dead, though, Fear the Walking Dead mainly focuses on one family - Madison, Travis, Alicia and Nick - as they resolve their deep-rooted differences and learn to adapt to a new lifestyle.
