The Walking Dead Spin-Off to Take Place in Los Angeles
The latest reports state that the fictional setting will definitely be Los Angeles, although there's no official word on whether they'll shoot there or in a cheaper stand-in such as Vancouver. However, it seems likely that it will film there as well, especially since a Reddit user from California posted this photo a few days ago:
While it makes sense to film in Los Angeles, as there is no shortage of actors there who would love to get into the Walking Dead business, it's ultimately disappointing that the creators touted this show as an exploration of the zombie apocalypse in "other parts of the world," and they decided to set it in another city in America. I'm sure LA will be very different from Atlanta, but there are other countries, you know.
Cobalt has added several actors to its cast, including Sunshine's Cliff Curtis, Harry Potter's Frank Dillane, and relative newcomer Alycia Debnam-Carey, although it has yet to cast the female lead. It has received a pilot order from AMC, and is expected to be ordered to series.
