'Z Nation' to be honored at Spokane City Council meeting

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane City Council Members are joining together to salute “Z Nation” with a special salutation at Monday's 6pm City Council Legislative meeting.

“Z Nation,” set three years after a zombie apocalypse decimated the U.S., follows the journey of the only known survivor of the zombie plague traveling from New York to California where scientists hope to retrieve antibodies from his blood to create a vaccine. The series, being filmed at various locations around Spokane to represent a large swath of the nation, truly showcases everything great about the city.

The 13-episode television series has employed nearly 200 actors, 1,300 extras and more than 100 crew members for a total of 12,000 worker days of employment.

The city of Spokane has proven to be an ideal location to depict many cities across the country, and is a prime city for television series and big screen filming and production.

Rich Cowan, North By Northwest Productions, will be on-hand to accept the salutation, with Zombie Heads, from the props department, on display.

The Spokane City Council President and Members of Spokane City Council are pleased to proclaim this summer of 2014 as the: “Summer of the Zombie Apocalypse in Spokane.”
