Building on the success of AMC’s The Walking Dead, the BBC is looking into setting up their own zombie-filled show called In the Flesh. Here’s the synopsis:
“[In the Flesh] 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.”
Created by newbie writer Dominic Mitchell (who was discovered as a part of the BBC’s Writersroom competition), the show doesn’t have a start date as of yet but when it does go to series it will air on BBC 3, which means we won’t likely get a look at it in America unless it is a success, or unless we steal the concept and make it our own. Either way, a look at the post post-apocalyptic landscape seems like an interesting entry point for a show, so I’m hopeful that I’ll one day get a look at it.
