What if the new Walking Dead spinoff were set in Orlando?


  • Movoto

We already know that the spinoff to AMC's zombie serial, The Walking Dead, is going to take place in Los Angeles. But  real estate search engine/blogger of random things Movoto is making the case that Orlando should have been the city to play host to the next iteration of zombie-survival TV shows. Movoto says that it analyzed 99 potential cities where the new Walking Dead could have taken place, and based on the number of gun stores, sporting goods stores, pharmacies, gas stations and hospitals in the area, Orlando would have given zombie slayers plenty of places to refuel, hide out and stock up. Not to mention the potential story lines. Per Movoto: 

The original show started following Rick Grimes and the search for his family. But what if Rick was on vacation and didn’t have access to his house or the police station?

What if Lori didn’t have to yell at Carl to get back in the house, because there weren’t any houses nearby… and they were stuck in Space Mountain instead?

To take that a step further, what if ALL the survivors were all on vacation? Their extended families aren’t anywhere close by. No communication. Nobody knows who is alive or dead. It’s some intense horror, that’s for sure.

The survivors would be immediately thrown into a situation where they have to survive with people who they don’t know and are from totally different backgrounds, lifestyles, and ages.

And is there anything scarier than a whole city full of undead, screaming babies?

Good point.
