If The Walking Dead is A-list, Z Nation (Syfy, Fridays, 10/9C) is definitely B-movie goodness. A fresh twist in the zombie movie/TV show sweepstakes, it finds a group of ordinary people turned survivors attempting to get the one known survivor of a zombie attack to a secure lab in California so a cure can be synthesized from his blood.
Syfy’s new zombie series, Z Nation has cast Harold Perrineau (Oz, Lost), Tom Everett Scott (Southland, Beauty and the Beast) and DJ Qualls (Supernatural, Legit) as part of the show’s ensemble cast – along with Michael Welch (Joan of Arcadia. Twilight Trilogy) and Kellita Smith (The Bernie Mac Show).
In the series, a group of everyday folks from New York must transport the only survivor of a zombie plague to the last functioning viral lab in California in hopes of creating a vaccine. Z Nation is set for a fall release. For more, check out the press release after the jump.
