Possible Premise for 'The Walking Dead' Spinoff

The buzz is saying it will be a prequel.

It's a slow news day, although to be honest it's not as if I skip gossip on busy news days.  The gossip today in on AMC's Walking Dead spin-off, still in early development.  Word is going around behind the scenes that the show will focus on the early stages of the zombie outbreak and the effort to contain it.

Kirkman and AMC have no comment on the rumors of course, but Kirkman has spoken about the basic concept behind what he wants in the spin-off and wanting to take the new show in a completely different direction with new cast and locations.

“It definitely won’t be set in Georgia… It’s important to us that this show exists on its own. The spin-off has to be a show worthy of existing, or else we’ve all sold out.”

Some might say the current decompressed story lines being dragged out through sixteen episodes a season is a bit of a sell out.  Some, not me of course, I enjoy watching nothing happen for episodes at a time.

As for the prequel rumor, it could be completely true and still change being this early in the new shows development.
