Another trailer has been released for In The Flesh, and it contains new footage from the upcoming BBC zombie series. An official release date for the first episode has also been announced. For our readers in the UK, the first episode will appear on BBC Three on March 17th at 10pm. We do not have US release details at this time, but will let readers know when anything is announced.
The story was developed by Dominic Mitchell and is a three-part limited series where 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’ve included the previously released trailer and teaser video below, for those that missed them last month.
