Syfy and The Asylum have teamed up to bring us “Z Nation,” an all-new zombie series set to air later this year, and tonight, during the premiere of Sharknado 2: The Second One, the network is releasing its first teaser for the show.
From the Press Release:
The first teaser trailer for Syfy’s new series “Z Nation” will air during the premiere of Sharknado 2: The Second One (review) on Wednesday, July 70, at 9/8c.
Get your first glimpse of the new 17-episode series starring Harold Perrineau (pictured; “Lost,” “Oz”), Tom Everett Scott (“Beauty and the Beast,” “Southland”), and DJ Qualls (Road Trip, “Supernatural”), which will air this fall.
“Z Nation,” produced by The Asylum (Sharknado), is an action-horror series about the epic struggle to save humanity after a zombie apocalypse. The cast also includes Michael Welch (The Twilight trilogy), Kellita Smith (“The Bernie Mac Show”), Anastasia Baranova (The Darkness II), Russell Hodgkinson (Big Fish), and Keith Allan (Rise of the Zombies).
“Z Nation” starts three years after the zombie virus has gutted the country, when 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.
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.
