“The Walking Dead” follows survivors of a zombie apocalypse. The AMC television series is based on a comic book series of the same name created by Robert Kirkman.

“The Walking Dead” spinoff will be filming in Hopewell starting this week.

The AMC series has a title now, too; it will be called “Monument.” The 10-episode series will follow two young women coming of age during the zombie apocalypse.

Crew members will be working in the area from Tuesday through Aug. 15. A few specifics on where they’ll be filming:

  • Hopewell Street between East Poythress and East Cawson streets will be the location for a critical scene featuring a plane crash with a 737 fuselage.
  • Hopewell Street between East Poythress and East Cawson streets will be closed from Wednesday at 6 p.m. to Aug. 15 at 6 p.m. Filming will happen overnight Aug. 7, Aug. 8 and Aug. 13.
  • East Broadway Avenue between Route 10 and Kippax Street will be closed during filming on Aug. 7 and Aug. 8 from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. and on Aug. 15 from 4 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Kendall Cooper Casting is looking for local extras for the series from now through November. Extras will be paid.
