Zoo cast

"Zoo" review by Suzanne 7/15/15
Airs Tuesdays, 9/8c on CBS

This is a really exciting, well-written, fun summer series. I'm surprised they chose to make it a series instead of a movie because it reminds me of movies like "Jurassic Park." So far I'm really enjoying it. It has two handsome and likable actors, two of my favorites, in fact. James Wolk (From "Mad Men" and many other shows) plays Jackson, a safari guide in Africa. His friend gets attacked by lions, and he rescues this tourist, Chloe. Meanwhile, in the U.S., a newspaper reporter, Jamie (Kristen Connolly) investigates an evil agricultural corporation (similar to Monsanto). She teams up with a quirky zookeeper named Mitch to find out why there are so many animal attacks and zoo break-outs. Mitch is payed by Billy Burke, another of my favorite actors (From "Revolution" and "Major Crimes" et al.)

There's a lot of action, and romantic chemistry, and good plot weaving. It's a fun action series for the Summer, but it also makes you think about what people do to the planet, and to the animals. It's based on a book by James Patterson. I haven't read it yet, but I've read a lot of his books, and he's an excellent writer. You should definitely watch this!

MORE INFORMATION:

JAMES WOLK, KRISTEN CONNOLLY, BILLY BURKE, NONSO ANOZIE AND NORA ARNEZEDER STAR IN “ZOO,” A NEW DRAMA SERIES BASED ON JAMES PATTERSON’S #1 BESTSELLING NOVEL, PREMIERING TUESDAY, JUNE 30

“First Blood” – Jackson Oz, an American ex-pat safari guide living in Africa, discovers a link between strange animal attacks on people occurring around the world and his late father's controversial theories about an impending threat to the human race. Meanwhile, journalist Jamie Campbell and veterinary pathologist Mitch Morgan team up to investigate similar abnormal animal behavior in Los Angeles, on the summer series premiere of ZOO, Tuesday, June 30 (9:00-10:00PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.  

ZOO, based on the #1 bestselling novel by James Patterson, is a global thriller about a wave of violent animal attacks against humans sweeping the planet. Jackson Oz is a young renegade American zoologist who spends his days running safaris in the wilds of Africa with his best friend Abraham, who has a deep understanding of wildlife. Shortly after the attacks begin, Oz begins to see a link between the strange animal attacks and his late father’s controversial theories about impending threats to the human race. In Los Angeles, news reporter Jamie Campbell is intent on being the first to break the story behind the mysterious animal behavior, and seeks the expertise of Mitch Morgan, an off-kilter veterinarian, who prefers the company of animals over people.  Nora Arnezeder stars as Chloe Tousignant, a French investigator Oz meets in Africa. As the assaults occurring worldwide become more cunning, coordinated and ferocious, Oz and the others are thrust into the race to unlock the mystery of the pandemic before there’s no place left for people to hide.
