Black Summer – TV series, USA, 2019

Black Summer is a 2019 American science fiction horror television series co-created by Karl Schaefer (co-creator of both Z Nation and Eerie, Indiana) and John Hyams with Abram Cox (Attack of the Gryphon; Kraken: Tentacles of the Deep; Mammoth) as the main writer. The series is produced by The Asylum, the same production company behind Z Nation, and will be written and directed primarily by Hyams.


“A prequel set in the Z Nation universe, Black Summer is a new series introducing all new characters from every walk of life. Jamie King (Hart of Dixie) stars as a mother, torn from her daughter, who embarks upon a harrowing journey, stopping at nothing to find her. Thrust alongside a small group of American refugees, she must brave a hostile new world and make brutal decisions during the most deadly summer of a zombie apocalypse.”
