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 »

Starts out as interesting and separate take on zombie apocalypse. It gets better for a a while and season 3 is probably best season of the WD shows. However, they really took huge misstep on season 4. They wrote some major characters off and to replace them, they gave cardboard cut outs and most annoying character in the TV - Morgan. If that wasn't bad enough, they also changed the writing, the look of the show and everything that made this somewhat unique and interesting. Quality drop was so huge that I have no interest in 5th season and beyond. Shame because there was something here for a little while.
