Looks like everyone is still banking off the success of AMC’s The Walking Dead and who can blame them. Next in line for zombie fans is the BBC original series In The Flesh. This three part mini series will air its first episode on BBC3 on March 17th. Don’t fret US residents; even though no official date has been given for its stateside airing, word is the details will be released soon. So pretty soon the walking dead will accompany all your weird Tardis fascinations. The show is developed by Dominic Mitchell.
“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.
