Jeremiah the series is a Platinum Studios comic-book-to-film adaptation. The adaptation of Jeremiah is based on the award-winning European graphic novel series by Belgian author Hermann Huppen. Set in the future, the series focuses on Jeremiah (Luke Perry) who must navigate his way through a world populated by the survivors of a deadly epidemic that spared only those who had not yet reached puberty. Now those same survivors must find their way in a decadent civilization and attempt to create a new world order of hope.
Jeremiah, a loner by nature, is joined by the na´ve yet colorful Kurdy (Malcolm-Jamal Warner) on a quest to find the mysterious "Valhalla Sector". Together they set out on a journey during which they discover rival social factions at war and young people who must make decisions without wisdom from those who lived before them.
They live in a post-apocalyptic world following "The Big Death," a mysterious but devastating plague which claimed the lives of billions of people -- everyone above the age of puberty.
The world, for this generation of lost children, was shattered forever when they were forced to bury their parents. Life has become a bleak and seemingly soulless attempt to stay alive - to plunder, forage or barter for food and clothes and to seek out the sordid and fleeting pleasures that briefly distract them from their lives of terror and savage desperation.
Fifteen years have gone by since the world "ended" -- literally for one generation, symbolically for Jeremiah's generation. Jeremiah (Luke Perry), is twenty-seven, cynical, cautious and intense. He is one of the few left with a conscience and with a sense of debt to his dead parents and the brother whom he unwittingly let die in the chaotic aftermath of the epidemic. He is grimly determined to find the location of the "Valhalla Sector" which his father spoke about shortly before he died. He is also determined to help those less fortunate than he, as a vindication for his brother's death.
Jeremiah writes ritualistic, poignant notes to his dead father, keeping him apprised of his progress. On his way to a town where he has heard there is a good information network, he meets Kurdy (Malcolm-Jamal Warner), a loner who's accustomed to taking care of "number one" and who tries to steal Jeremiah's freshly-caught fish. Jeremiah takes pity on Kurdy and shares his meal, and although Kurdy disappears shortly afterward, the two are destined to hook up again.
