First ‘Z Nation’ Trailer Arrives, Does Syfy’s ‘Walking Dead’ Cash In Have What It Takes to Survive?

television-tv-news-and-talkAnnounced back in early April, Syfy revealed they would be producing a zombie drama series titled Z Nation. Without a doubt trying to capitalize on the insane popularity of AMC’s The Walking Dead series, but can it do it?

I’m going to say no. With a look at the series in this first trailer, this looks like one of their Saturday night b-movies they show. Sure it will probably find an audience, but I can’t see it getting the ratings needed for a long-term run.

Syfy ordered 13 episodes for the first season, will it see all of them aired? That remains to be seen. The series stars Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott, DJ Qualls, Michael Welch, Kellita Smith and Anastasia Baranova. Z Nation is due to premiere in September.
