The zombie universe continues to expand on AMC. After premiering Fear the Walking Dead to record-setting ratings, the network is planning a stand-alone episode of a zombie attack that takes place on a passenger plane, EW reports. As their prize, the lucky survivor of that episode will get to join the cast of Fear the Walking Dead on the second season. The stand-alone episode will debut online and unfold in small bits that will air on television during commercial breaks of The Walking Dead. It sounds similar to how the Razor movie functioned in the Battlestar Galactica universe — as an interesting stand-alone narrative that included some of the same characters but wasn't required viewing. In any case, we can help brainstorm titles for the new show. We are partial to The Flying Dead, Air Force Zom, Brains on a Plane, and Zombie Airplane!
