Los Angeles to Become Main Setting for The Walking Dead Spin-off. The zombie apocalypse is making a move to the West Coast, specifically in Hollywood. That’s right, we finally learn that AMC’s The Walking Dead spin-off will be based in the city of Los Angeles.
TVLine reported exclusively that the potential spin-off to the monster hit would be taking place in California’s city of angels. It’s not yet known if the show, tentatively titled Cobalt, will actually be shooting in L.A. or in another city to double as the City of Angels. The pilot is scheduled to be filming in early 2015, so we should get some developments in the coming months.
The Walking Dead spin-off will explore some unseen territory in the zombie apocalypse where the there may be more of the living than the undead. Written by showrunner Dave Erickson and creator Robert Kirkman, the offshoot will be somewhat of a prequel that would go to the early days of the contagion and the attempt to contain it from spreading.
“Almost from the beginning of The Walking Dead on AMC, fans have been curious about what is going on in the zombie apocalypse in other parts of the world,” said AMC President Charlie Collier back in September. With the spin-off taking place in Los Angeles, this should shed some light on what is happening to the living in other areas besides Georgia, where the main series takes place.
Led by actor Cliff Curtis, the ever-growing cast includes Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey.
