The Walking Dead has been an absolute ratings monster for AMC, but no other network has been able to capitalize on America's zombie fever. Syfy hopes to change that, releasing the trailer for Z Nation. The 30-second clip doesn't offer much in the way of plot. And to be frank, it doesn't offer much promise to compete with The Walking Dead either. 

Set to release Sept. 12 at 10 p.m., Z Nation stars Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott, DJ Qualls, Michael Welch and Kellita Smith. The show picks up three years after the zombie outbreak and will follow a team attempting to transport the only known survivor of the disease from New York to California. 

Whether they and the show succeed remains to be seen.
