In case you didn’t know, producer David Alpert has his hands in more than a few cool projects. So we bent his ear about everything from Fear the Walking Dead to Max Landis’ new comic Green Valley.

Alpert serves as a producer on AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead and opened up about the challenges of getting the project off the ground, from shifting production to the narrative approach of establishing these new characters into a pre-existing world. It’s an interesting peek behind the curtain, especially with the back half of Season 2 hitting this fall.

The producer also talked about adapting Robert Kirkman’s exorcism-centric comic Outcast for Cinemax, and the way the characters evolved throughout that process of the first season. Alpert also touched on the development of a TV adaptation of Chronicles of Amber, as well as Max Landis’ ambitious new fantasy comic Green Valley.
