SYFY’S Zombie Series Z Nation Unveils Its Cast

 A zombie story is only as good as its characters — and when those characters are on screen, they’d better be well cast. What makes The Walking Dead so good? It’s not the idea of a zombie apocalypse. TWD doesn’t even have an especially unique take on the genre (unlike BBC’s In the Flesh), but it does have engaging characters that are incredibly well cast.
Z Nation, Syfy’s take on the genre, set to debut this fall, doesn’t have a super-unique storyline, either — it’s a post-apocalyptic Odyssey to find a humanity-saving zombie vaccine — but its newly-announced cast looks promising. Hopefully, the character they play will be engaging enough to make the show a success.
From Syfy’s press release:
“Syfy today unveiled the cast of Z Nation, an all-new zombie series set to debut in the fall.  From production company The Asylum (Sharknado), the 13-episode action-horror series depicts the epic struggle to save humanity after a zombie apocalypse.  Harold Perrineau (OzLost) Tom Everett Scott (SouthlandBeauty and the Beast),DJ Qualls (Supernatural), Michael Welch (Twilight trilogy), and Kellita Smith (The Bernie Mac Show) have joined the ensemble drama, currently in production in Spokane, WA.
Rounding out the ensemble are Anastasia Baranova (The Darkness II) as Addy, Russell Hodgkinson (Big Fishas Doc, and Keith Allan (Rise of the Zombies) as Murphy.”
