Anyone who reads my blog should know my passion for all things Z O M B I E! Blame George Romero for starting it all.
Well, Friday brings us some exciting news concerning the BBC and Zombies! BBC’s brand-new zombie drama series is to be called In the Flesh (the title alone gives me the tingles) that looks like it’ll mix a bit of camp a la Shaun of the Dead fun with some Walking Dead horror and drama.
In The Flesh will be a three-part (duration of each part: 90 minutes) drama series that will air on BBC Three, which also airs the supernatural series Being Human.
The series will be written by a new writer named Dominic Mitchell (the guy was discovered through the BBC’s Northern Voices competition).
The BBC says In The Flesh:
…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.
There’s release date for this series but merely it’s in the works. I will keep a look at for news about it and keep you informed.
It’s an exciting time for zombies. 🙂
