Expanding the Z Nation universe is welcome news to the rabid fan-base of the zombie series, who were still reeling from the cancellation bombshell from last December.  Black Summer will star Jaime King (My Bloody Valentine, Sin City) as a young mother named Rose.  In the earliest days of the zombie apocalypse, the aftermath of which we viewed through the Z Nation lens, Rose must journey and fight her way through the carnage to find her daughter in the increasingly desolate and dangerous wasteland.  Banding together with a group of Americans, the survivors must work together to find their loved ones while fighting the un-dead…..and even each other.  The show will also star Sal Velez Jr. (FX’s Mayans M.C.) as William Velez, who appears to be an ally based on the trailer sequences. read more
