Outcast: The Newest Horror/Drama Series From The Creator Of The Walking Dead

Last June 2, I got the privilege to join the exclusive first episode screening of Outcast two (2) days before it's world premier last June 4.

If you loved The Walking Dead, then you'll definitely get glued with Outcast!

From the creator of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman brings us yet another thrilling series that will keep you wanting for more. Outcast, which is based on the comic book of the same name by Kirkman and co-creator and illustrator Paul Azaceta, is a compelling story about a young man fighting manifestations of demonic possession.

Before we watched the first episode, FOX brought us to BGC to unveil one of the murals that are strategically placed in 13 countries around the world. Each city’s mural was painted by a local artist based on illustrations provided by Azuceta to depict one panel from the scene’s storyboard, similar to panels in a comic book. Renowned graphic design team Team Manila was assigned to create the Outcast mural in Manila, coloring in Azuceta’s black-and-white sketches and adding their own flourishes of Filipino culture to the art.

With it's geo-tag feature, the mural lets anyone within the vicinity unlock an exclusive content by simply logging in to http://outcastart.tv.

“FOX is excited to be featuring another show that pushes the envelope for the horror genre on TV, and an original scripted drama by FNG at that. We’re confident that Filipino fans who have loyally been tuning in to Kirkman’s previous work on The Walking Dead will embrace Outcast as another fine example of edgy storytelling, relatable characters, and excellent production. Our collaboration with Team Manila for Outcast was also another great opportunity to showcase local artistic talent on an international platform.” - Charo Espedido, Director and Head of Marketing at FNG Philippines

After the mural visit, we went to FOX office for the screening. I've seen the trailers prior to the viewing and it made me really interested with the series. What I loved about the episode is that eerie scenes were added not just for the sake of scaring the viewers. It helped a lot in revealing important details of the story and how each character were interconnected.

The premiere episode introduces the lead character of Kyle Barnes, a young man from the small town of Rome in West Virginia who returns home after a long absence. What marks Kyle is his dark history of having witnessed his loved ones undergo demonic possession—and it’s the reason why he left Rome in the first place. He returns years later to find the answers behind his family’s suffering, in the hopes that he can help Joshua Austin, an 8-year-old who lives in front of the Barnes house and is believed to be possessed by a demon that seems mysteriously connected to Kyle. Together with Rev. Anderson, a West Virginia evangelist who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil on Earth, Kyle revisits Rome to face his past, discover his fate, and possibly change the world forever.

Outcast will be aired exclusively on FOX every Saturdays at 8:55PM starting June 4.
