round and trying to feed on the remaining humans and animals left alive. Society as everyone knew it is gone… no more TV, no more electricity, no more running water, no more department stores, and no more internet. The Walking Dead is the story of survival of one small group of people as they go about trying to get through life one day at a time.
The story begins with Rick, ex cop, waking up from a coma only to find the devastation outside and the blood thirsty zombies. Rick meets other survivors and they keep moving trying to find safety. Rick looks for his family and miraculously finds them well and alive. The group now battles zombies and attempts to get the zombies before the zombies get them. They find guns and ammo along with other weapons, cars, gas, and food along the way.
Here is an example of another extras casting call for The Walking Dead for a previous season – Season 2 saw over 6000 people apply to be zombies on camera.
