Syfy today announced "Z Nation," a 13-episode zombie series set to debut in the fall. From production company The Asylum ("Sharknado"), the action-horror series depicts the epic struggle to save humanity after a zombie apocalypse. The series, which will air on Syfy, will be produced by The Asylum and sold internationally by Dynamic Television.

Karl Schaefer ("Eerie Indiana," "Eureka," "The Dead Zone") will serve as executive producer and showrunner. "'Z Nation' will take viewers where no zombie has gone before," says Schaefer. The show, he continues, adds "a sense of hope to the horror of the apocalypse - our everyday heroes take the fight to the zombies. It'll be an epic journey unlike anything you've seen before."

In making the announcement, Chris Regina, Senior Vice President, Programming, Syfy, said: "'Z Nation' is a unique new journey into the long established zombie genre. 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."

In "Z Nation," three years have passed since the zombie virus has gutted the country, and 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.

"Z Nation" is a dynamic ensemble drama that will plunge viewers into a fully-imagined post-zombie America and take them on an adventure with a diverse group of richly-drawn characters. As the reluctant heroes learn to work as a team and battle ever-more-menacing zombies, their flaws, idiosyncrasies, and moral dilemmas will ultimately become the heart of the show.
