We’re just two weeks away from the Season 3 premiere of AMC’s THE WALKING DEAD. But some of you (me, really) are just too damn impatient and cannot wait. Well, lucky you (I still mean me), AMCTV.com has launched THE WALKING DEAD original webisodes. Much like last year, the four episode web series is produced and directed by Emmy Award winning special effects genius Greg Nicotero. Each five minute short was produced by Generate for AMC and are officially live now on AMCTV.com.
“Cold Storage” tells the story of a young man, Chase (Josh Stewart), trying to reach his sister in the early days of the zombie apocalypse. He finds temporary shelter in a storage facility run by a former employee named BJ (Daniel Roebuck); however, things are not what they appear.
In addition to Stewart (THE DARK KNIGHT RISES) and Roebuck (LOST), the cast of “Cold Storage” includes Cerina Vincent (CABIN FEVER) as Kelly and Chris Nelson (KILL BILL) as Harris.
“It’s such a thrill to revisit the The Walking Dead world from a new perspective and tell a bit of a darker story this time around with the webisodes,” said Nicotero. “We had a terrific cast, and once again the crew came up with some killer walker gags and visual effects. This year there’s a clear nod to the ‘show’ but our story could definitely exist on it’s own as the ‘what if’ story of The Walking Dead.”
THE WALKING DEAD returns Sun., Oct. 14 at 9/8c on AMC and will also stream live online at AMCtv.com. The episode will be available online the following day in addition to 15 bonus minutes from Sunday’s premiere of Talking Dead, AMC’s live after-show hosted by Chris Hardwick.
