In less than 90 seconds, the first installment of "Fear The Walking Dead Flight 462" ratchets the tension up from the typical stress you feel when boarding an average flight to just beneath the "zombie-fueled nightmare" level.
Part 1 (of 16) of AMC's online-only storyline introduces viewers to the cast in the early days of the walker breakout, as they prepare to take off from Los Angeles on their way to a safer locale -- or so they hope.
A group of passengers experience the outbreak aboard a commercial plane. A new installment of the 16-part series is available every week in the AMC Mobile App and on-air during premiere episodes of "The Walking Dead."
"'Flight 462' is a great extension of the world of 'Fear' and will engage fans across multiple platforms with another riveting story set at the start of the fall of civilization," Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV, said in a statement. "We are thrilled to be collaborating with Dave Erickson and David Wiener on another piece of original content. Watching how they'll bring one of these new characters to the second season of 'Fear' will be really exciting for viewers to follow."
Based on the Image Comics series of the same name and created by Robert Kirkman, the sixth season of "The Walking Dead" is scheduled to debut with a 90-minute episode Oct. 11 on AMC. Airing on Sundays at 9 pm EST. "Fear the Walking Dead" was co-created by Kirkman and Erickson and stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Mercedes Mason and more.
