With a lot of talk floating around right now about the Walking Dead spin-off series, a new rumour has appeared online that could actually make it an interesting concept…

The show, tipped to be called Cobalt and to be set in  LA (here), has until now been assumed to run alongside the current series, but it may be a prequel or at least have prequel elements to it.

The Hollywood Reporter are saying that they “believe that the show will be set in Los Angeles, and will cover the dawn of the zombie apocalypse.”

‘An early script features one character who briefly appeared during a key season one episode,’ they continue.

So, any ideas who this may be? The CDC may be a factor, perhaps? Anyway, would you guys be interested in a series set before or at least focusing on in part, the world before the dead rising?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
