A Walking Dead spin-off, set in Los Angeles, following two families who must band together to survive the undead apocalypse.
The actor who plays Travis Manawa, Cliff Curtis, is a New Zealander of Maori descent. Curtis has become known over the years for playing characters who come from a wide variety of racial, national, and/or ethnic backgrounds (including Latino, African-American, Iraqi Arab, Indian, and others) but he has only rarely had roles in which he played someone who shared his actual lineage. In an August 2015 interview, Curtis revealed that when he was cast as Travis, the show's creators adjusted his character to make Travis also of Maori descent, and that it is one of the only roles he's had for which he was not required to cover his traditional tattoos. "Manawa" is a Maori word meaning "mangrove tree"; it can also refer to a person's hand, breath, or heart, depending on the context.
