Spin off series of The Walking Dead that portrays the beginning events of the zombie apocalypse in the West coast during the same time frame when the city of Atlanta was falling under attack, while Rick was in a coma at the local hospital. It shows how the strain was already in full effect in the south while it's just starting in California.
The actor who plays Travis Manawa, Cliff Curtis, is a New Zealander of Maori descent. Curtis has become known over the years for playing characters who come from a wide variety of racial, national, and/or ethnic backgrounds (including Latino, African-American, Iraqi Arab, Indian, and others) but he has only rarely had roles in which he played someone who shared his actual lineage. In an August 2015 interview, Curtis revealed that when he was cast as Travis, the show's creators adjusted his character to make Travis also of Maori descent, and that it is one of the only roles he's had for which he was not required to cover his traditional tattoos. "Manawa" is a Maori word meaning "mangrove tree"; it can also refer to a person's hand, breath, or heart, depending on the context. See more »

I can't remember a group of lead characters that were so painfully boring, one dimensional, and unlikable. Their collective stupidity is so hard to watch, it makes me wonder how show runners from TWD could've created this mess. The teenage angst ridden kids have to go, why would I waste an hour watching some clueless, bratty kids? The soldiers are right; weed out the sick and weak, contain the disease. That's the end of the story line for that show, instead our "lead characters" keep screwing it up. If these idiots would stop getting in their way, maybe the soldiers could contain the disease. That would obviously nullify the Walking Dead, so I guess they can't change the plot too much, but I'm out on this series.
