Over the last few years, Syfy has become a repository of reality shows, professional wrestling, and half-assed monster-of-the-week creature features. That’s about to change in a big way, as they’re finally getting back into the habit of producing original science fiction content instead of just spewing out mediocre nonsense. One of their upcoming projects, the undead drama Z Nation, has just added a trio of new actors to the cast list. The Z, of course, stands for zombies.
Harold Perrineau (Lost), DJ Qualls (Hustle and Flos), and Tom Everett Scott (That Thing You Do) have signed on to the show, which is currently in production in Spokane, Washington, and join Michael Welch (Twilight) and Kellita Smith (Roll Bounce). The Asylum, yes, the people responsible for such cinematic treasures like Sharknado and Titanic 2, is behind this series, their first foray into television. Which gives many of us pause, and rightly so.
