An unbridled hit for the Syfy Channel and a guilty pleasure for fans, last year’s “Sharknado” was a surprise piece of television cheese and a topic of discussion at the water cooler. The filmmakers were caught off guard by the success of the feature, but now have bounced back with a sequel, “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” which starts production in New York next week.
The second television epic finds the two leads from the first film (Ian Ziering and Tara Reid) in Manhattan when another global warming disaster strikes and creates another ‘Sharknado’ event. What are the odds? Now, Fin (Ziering) and April (Reid) are tasked with saving the Big Apple.
