Syfy Orders Zombie Series ‘Z Nation’

syfySyfy has ordered a 13-episode zombie series from The Asylum, the company behind the cable channel’s hit 2013 B movie Sharknado.

Titled Z Nation, the post-apocalyptic horror series is set three years after a zombie virus ravaged the country, as a team of “everyday heroes” transports the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab awaits his blood. While the antibodies he carries represent the world’s last, best hope, he also hides a dark secret that threatens everyone. The show is set to air this fall.

Z Nation is a unique new journey into the long-established zombie genre,” Syfy’s Chris Regina said in a statement. “Instead of existential despair, the series offers hope that somehow, some way, humanity will not only survive, but triumph. In producing their first ever weekly series, our long-time partners The Asylum have created a different way of telling an iconic story.”

Karl Schaefer (Eerie Indiana, Eureka, The Dead Zone) will serve as executive producer and showrunner.

    Hm, I should give this show a chance as it is going from the main complaint I have about Walking Dead, that the survivors are just holing up and not doing much else. But again, this is Syfy, which has a VERY bad track record for quality science fiction shows. But again this is the same network that put out Battlestar Galactica and Farscape.
