'Fear the Walking Dead' to film in southeast Austin this week


The AMC TV series "Fear the Walking Dead" will begin shooting scenes for an upcoming episode in southeast Austin this week.

According to a film permit filed with the city, filming on the "Walking Dead" spin-off will begin on Wednesday, Nov. 29 in the area of Shady Cedar Drive and Onion Creek Drive.

The producers say preparations for the art department and lighting will take place in the area on Tuesday.

In addition to zombies, be aware of street closures in the area, as producers note that "Because our show takes place in a post-apocalyptic backdrop, we hope to intermittently hold traffic on S. Pleasant Valley Road between Springville Lane and William Cannon for very short periods on the shoot day only with the help of APD officers."
