Yvette Nicole Brown and Felicia Day are joining the next chapter of the Walking Dead Universe. Skybound Entertainment, Genvid Entertainment, and Facebook announced on Thursday that Brown and Day will serve as the live-action hosts of The Walking Dead: Last Mile, an interactive storytelling experience driven by fans. Previously revealed as "the next big installment in The Walking Dead franchise," TWD:LM is part game, part interactive television show. The Massively Interactive Live Event — MILE — begins with Brown hosting the first weekly interactive live stream on Monday, July 11, at 4 p.m. PT, exclusively on Facebook Gaming and Facebook Watch.
The Walking Dead: Last Mile features a series of weekly interactive live streams where hosts Brown and Day will reveal fan's choices in the TWD: LM narrative, discuss the story with special guests, and highlight key decisions made by the audience in the Facebook Instant Game, launching in Open Beta on July 11 with new story content and minigames to play every day.
According to a release, fans "will decide the fate of the inhabitants of Prosper Landing, a remote, coastal Alaskan village that had been spared most of the walker apocalypse, until now." The Instant Game introduces the daily story content that fans can view to help make crucial decisions — ultimately shaping the official TWD Universe.
