FIRST 'FEAR THE WALKING DEAD' POSTER AND CAST PHOTO IS HERE! NATHANIEL PARKER IS KING OF PHILISTIA IN ABC'S 'OF KINGS AND PROPHETS' EPIC TV SERIES

  NATHANIEL PARKER JOINS
'OF KINGS & PROPHETS' SERIES
As you know it was supposed to start airing this Autumn on Sunday nights at ABC, but new historical series OF KINGS AND PROPHETS has been pushed to Mid Season in order for the producers to fix all the weak spots and improve the story. That also means some recasting, so the new face to be added to the cast is Nathaniel Parker as the cagey, shrewd and lethal King Achish, the King of Philistia who has been warring with King Saul (Ray Winstone) for years. The new series is an epic Biblical saga of faith, ambition and betrayal as told through the eyes of a battle-weary king, a powerful and resentful prophet and a resourceful young shepherd on a collision course with destiny.

  'FEAR THE WALKING DEAD'
GETS 1ST POSTER & CAST PHOTO
Meanwhile, first poster and cast photo have been released for THE WALKING DEAD companion series FEAR THE WALKING DEAD which should hit the small screens in more than 150 countries around the world later this summer, in August to be more precise!
  Kim Dickens leads the cast of the series, as a school guidance counsellor Madison living in Los Angeles at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. She is sceptical when she hears of the spreading zombie virus, but soon realises that she and her family are in grave danger. Cliff Curtis plays her fiancé Travis, Frank Dillane plays her dropout son Nick, and Alycia Debnam Carey is her responsible daughter Alicia. The series, which, apparently, won't include as much zombies as its older sister series, will also have Rubén Blades, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Sandrine Holt in the cast.

    1. the did say the show won't be zombie centred.... I just hope that doesn't mean no suspense which is what TWD has been built upon

  5. I don't know if I see that Fear The Walking Dead making it. I am sure they are hoping to draw from the original's success, reeling in their fan base, but I think it might just be overkill.

    1. possibly, especially with the original series losing its quality and essence with the arrival of the new show runner .. the fifth season was, at moments, painfully boring and offensively disrespectful towards the original core of the show

    2. So I've heard! We still haven't started watching it yet. I wanted to get to it this summer. We have 3 more episodes of The Wire to finish, then the new season of Orange is the New Black is a must before anything else gets watched around here. I am thinking by August, hopefully.

    3. I usually save my British series for summer :) Especially since they have up to ten episodes so it's always like a summer event for me :) I'm finishing POLDARK now, which is lovely and airs at PBS too on Sundays, and will then go to BANISHED and INDIAN SUMMERS. And I also watch DARK MATTER and KILLJOYS which have started at SyFy few weeks ago.
