TV News: First Trailer Hits For The BBC's New Zombie Drama, IN THE FLESH...

TV News

The first trailer for BBC Three's new zombie show IN THE FLESH aired on the channel last night post-BEING HUMAN, but it's now made its way online for those who missed it. The question is, do we have room in our lives for yet more tales of the undead in a post-TWD world? This at least has a unique spin on the well-worn sub-genre, but time will tell. Check out the promo below and see what you think...

Official Synopsis:

“After his death four years ago his friends and family never thought they’d see Keiren again. But then, shortly after his funeral, thousands of the dead were re-animated; and now, after months of rehabilitation and medication, the zombies are gradually being returned to their homes.

Now known as PDS sufferers (Partially Deceased Syndrome) - and since the passing of the PDS Protection Act - the Government have set an agenda of acceptance and tolerance, one that is at odds with the communities abandoned at the time of the rising and the bloody battle between zombies and humans that ensued.

A cauldron of brutal anti-zombie sentiment the source of the ‘rotter’-hating Human Volunteer Force (HVF), Keiren returns to his home in the rural village of Roarton. Here he is forced to confront his family, the community that rejected him and the flashbacks that continue to haunt him of what he did in his untreated state.

Keiren’s parents Steve (Steve Copper) and Sue (Marie Critchley) are undoubtedly pleased to see him but his sister Jem (Harriet Cains) isn’t so ready to pick up where they left off.

Meanwhile the HVF, led by the violent Bill Macy (Steve Evets) and backed by local vicar churchman Oddie (Kenneth Cranham) are ready to take action against any PDS sufferers reintegrated on their patch.”

IN THE FLESH airs on BBC Three soon. Stay tuned for more info...
