SyFy scored big ratings with the premiere of The Asylum's SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE earlier this week and during the airing of the film SyFy shared the first promo for their upcoming zombie series "Z Nation". If you didn't catch it during SHARKNADO 2 fret not...we've got it for ya below.
"Z Nation", produced by The Asylum, is an action-horror series about the epic struggle to save humanity after a zombie apocalypse. The 13-episode "Z Nation" stars Harold Perrineau ("Lost," "Oz"), Tom Everett Scott ("Beauty and the Beast," "Southland"), and DJ Qualls (ROAD TRIP, "Supernatural") and will begin airing in September.
The cast also includes Michael Welch (THE TWILIGHT SAGA), Kellita Smith ("The Bernie Mac Show"), Anastasia Baranova, Russell Hodgkinson, and Keith Allan.
Karl Schaefer ("Eerie Indiana," "Eureka," "The Dead Zone") serves as executive producer and showrunner. Acclaimed action director John Hyams (UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING) directed the pilot.
Here's the official plot:
In "Z Nation," three years have passed since the zombie virus has gutted the country, and a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood. Although the antibodies he carries are the world's last, best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all. With humankind's survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of rusted-out post-apocalyptic America.
