MIPTV: 'Z Nation' Goes Global
Dynamic Television sells Syfy zombie series worldwide.
Syfy's Z Nation zombies are set for a world-wide invasion.
Dynamic Television has closed sales on the zombie action/comedy series with networks across the globe, including deals with Canal Plus in France, RTL2 in Germany and KMH in South Korea.
Netflix picked up SVOD rights to the series in its international territories. Other deals included ones with Pick in the U.K., Chinese network Sohu and Poland's Puls network.
Syfy has ordered a second season of the popular horror series, produced by The Asylum, the group behind the hit Sharknado franchise. The first season of Z Nation, a B-movie style answer to AMC's The Walking Dead, was the top-rated new series on Syfy last year and the number two rated series on the network as a whole.
Z Nation stars Kellita Smith, Keith Allan and DJ Qualls. It is set in the United States, three years after a zombie invasion.
