It’s finally time to ‘Fear the Walking Dead’
On Sunday, AMC debuts the much-anticipated origin story for their mega-hit zombie series “The Walking Dead.” The focus of “Fear the Walking Dead” (9 p.m.) will be to track the plight of a blended family in Los Angeles as things go to heck at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. The series stars Kim Dickens (“Treme”) as the mother of two adult children and Cliff Curtis (“Gang Related”) as her boyfriend, who has a teenaged son. The intensity of the 90-minute premiere is good news for established “Walking Dead” fans, and the storyline is such that it’ll be pretty easy for newbies to jump in.
