The Walking Dead Spin-Off (Working Title) (AMC)
Spun Off From: The Walking Dead
When AMC first announced
its upcoming Walking Dead
"companion" series, we couldn't help but laugh, especially when network boss Charlie Collier called it a "no-brainer." Doesn't the flagship series have enough characters? What's next, a zombie apocalypse network? (They could call it Z!) Let's face it: The reason that Walking Dead
is such appointment television is because it tells a psychologically compelling story that is unique in the current TV landscape. Trying to duplicate that formula will just dilute the brand's impact and be, well, overkill.
