The Walking Dead spin-off Fear the Walking Dead, a title I can’t type without giggling and shaking my head, is currently in production. Here’s a teaser.

Following up a trailer released in March, the above behind-the-scenes footage breaks down some of the back story for the new show, leading up to its TBD summer premiere. Unlike its parent series, Fear the Walking Dead is set in Los Angeles and the timeline starts at the onset of the deadly outbreak.

“The coolest thing about the show is that it tells its own story,” says executive producer Robert Kirkman. “You don’t need to have watched The Walking Dead to understand Fear the Walking Dead.”

More details from The Hollywood Reporter:

[Fear the Walking Dead] stars Cliff Curtis (Gang Related) stars as Sean Cabrera, a teacher who shares a son with his ex-wife. Sons of Anarchy’s Kim Dickens co-stars as Nancy, a guidance counselor who works at the school with Sean and is seeing him romantically. Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) co-stars as Nancy’s son, Nick, who has battled a drug problem. And Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Woods) will play Nancy’s ambitious daughter, Ashley, Nick’s polar opposite, dreaming of leaving L.A. for Berkeley when the apocalypse strikes.


But are there cannibals?
