Last May, we first reported that BBC was developing a new zombie series. Titled In The Flesh, we now have the first trailer for you to watch. The story was developed by Dominic Mitchell and is a three-part limited series where treated zombies are rehabilitated back into society:
“His script begins after the Zombie Uprising has been quelled by the Human Volunteer Force and life is starting to return to normal. Any surviving zombies have been captured, medicated, held in an NHS holding facility in Norfolk and are being slowly re-integrated back into society, with the help of contact lenses and cover up mousse. The story follows teenager Kieran Walker and boldly goes where no zombie drama has gone before.”
In The Flesh was directed by Jonny Campbell and stars Luke Newberry, Ricky Tomlinson, and Kenneth Cranham. TV development in the UK is a bit different from the US, and you don’t usually see big season orders, so it’s possible that the success of the limited series could lead to additional episodes. We’ll have more information as it becomes available and you can check out the first episode in March.
