Announced by AMC as a tie-in with the current season of “Fear the Walking Dead,” the network’s zombie franchise is headed into treacherous waters with “Dead in the Water.”
The digital series will be produced by The Content Room’s AMCN Digital Originals.
“Dead in the Water” is described as “a scripted series tying into Season 6 of Fear the Walking Dead and telling the story of a submarine crew fighting for survival.”
“Cut off from the surface world just as the apocalypse hits, the submarine becomes a nuclear-fueled walker-filled death trap with no way out.”
