In a series teeming with zombies, carnage and destruction (and a lot of all three so sit tight), we might not have come across anyone nicer in a long time than series star and producer of Black Summer, Jaime King. In large part, this prequel to the long-running Z Nation is a sort of reawakening for King as lead Rose who must protect her daughter Anna (Zoe Marlett) at all costs from the burgeoning zombie apocalypse. Unlike what you may have presumed, this is no women in peril series, as Black Summer features a kickass lead, some of the best cinematography you’ll see on any series, all of which well earned its endorsement from the master of horror, Stephen King himself. It was our pleasure to get the opportunity to chat over Zoom video recently with the down-to-Earth, lovely, and incredibly talented Jaime King.
Black Summer seasons 1 and 2 are currently streaming on Netflix
