Only a few days left before the broadcast of the first episode of The Last of US, but still no broadcaster in France. If the French are starting to despair and are looking for alternative solutions (piracy around this series is likely to explode), on the production side, we are multiplying outings and interventions to get people talking about the program. Recently, it was the executive producer of the series Craig Mazin (creator of Chernobyl) who spoke about the differences that we will find in the series compared to the video game.

Depicting this infection process proved difficult to make believable in the television adaptation, as it would have required the characters to wear masks everywhere, all the time. However, Mazin assures that the writers have managed to keep the spirit and authenticity of the video game.

However, it will be necessary to wait until January 15 to have the heart net. But what we have already seen in the various trailers and other making of, all this looks very promising.
