— A studio is constructing a 15-foot-high wall around a neighborhood in the small town of Senoia, creating an enclosed set to film new episodes of AMC's show "The Walking Dead."

Senoia Mayor Larry Owens says city council this month approved plans for the wall, which will enclose an area including about four brownstone town homes plus about a half-dozen additional residences.

Owens says he expects the wall to be completed within the next few weeks and will likely be in place through November. He says the area inside the wall will serve as a safe haven from zombies known as "walkers" on the show.

Owens says about 30 people are living inside the area to be enclosed by the wall, made of a material designed to look like concrete.
