Asylum has been a company we refuse to waste energy on, mostly because they are always creating faux sequels to franchises, and purposely making bad movies like Sharknado.
But, today things begin anew. They finally have something I’m excited to share with you dear readers, something that’s actually worth your time.
Here’s the trailer for their new series, “Z Nation,” premiering this September on Syfy. The premise is cool, the cast is badass, and most importantly…the show takes itself very seriously. You’ll see in this promo just how cool the zombies are, and also enjoy a few smart gimmicks such as an undead child.
Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott, DJ Qualls, Michael Welch, Kellita Smith, Anastasia Baranova, Russel Hodgkingson and Keith Allan star.
“ ‘Z Nation’ starts three years after the zombie virus has gutted the country. 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.“
