Frank Dillane co-stars as Madison's drug-addicted son, Nick; Alycia Debnam Carey is Madison's ambitious daughter, Alicia -- Nick's polar opposite who dreams of leaving Los Angeles for Berkeley when the apocalypse strikes. Ruben Blades co-stars as Daniel Salazar and Mercedes Mason is set as Daniel's daughter, Ofelia, who encounter the core cast when the civilization begins to crumble. Adam Davidson co-exec produces and directed the pilot.

The companion series -- at least the first season -- takes place at the on set of the outbreak, effectively the period that Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) was in the coma during the pilot of The Walking Dead.
