On the all new episode entitled, "We All Fall Down" - written by Brett C. Leonard and Kate Barnow and directed by Adam Davidson - our group seeks shelter with a survivalist family. Madison tries to uncover the family's true motives. Salazar works to uncover Strand's intentions. Critics continue to rave about season two, including Richard Lawson of VanityFair.com, who said, "'Fear the Walking Dead' knots surprisingly elegant suspense."

Rounding out the week is the highly anticipated debut of AMC's six-part mini-series, "The Night Manager," airing on Tuesday, April 19th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the season premiere episode, written by David Farr and John le Carré and directed by Susanne Bier, a hotel night manager receives a plea for help from an elegant guest. His actions draw him into the terrifying world of the worst man in the world. Influencers and critics are already raving about the series, including Anna Wintour of Vogue who calls the series a "wonderful production," and Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone who hails the series as "a cloak and dagger masterpiece."
A contemporary interpretation of John le Carré's espionage drama - and the first television adaptation of a le Carré novel in more than 20 years - "The Night Manager" will bring together love, loss and revenge in a complex story of modern criminality. The series follows former British soldier Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston) who is recruited by intelligence operative Angela Burr (Olivia Colman) to infiltrate the inner circle of international businessman Richard Onslow Roper (Hugh Laurie) and detonate the unholy alliance he has ministered between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade. To get to the heart of Roper's vast empire, Pine must withstand the suspicious interrogations of his venal chief of staff Major Corkoran (Tom Hollander) and the allure of Roper's beautiful girlfriend Jed (Elizabeth Debicki). In his quest to do the right thing, Pine must first become a criminal himself. Executive producers include Simon Cornwell, Stephen Cornwell, Stephen Garrett and John Le Carré, Writer David Farr also serves as an executive producer as does Academy Award(R) winner Susanne Bier, who served as director.
The Night Manager is one of le Carré's most beloved and critically acclaimed books. A fusion of spy story and tale of organized crime, the novel was a best-seller in the United States and the UK, translated into over 20 languages and selling over a million copies in North America alone.
