We got wind of a new zombie series in development from BBC way back in May called In the Flesh and now we’ve got the very first trailer for you guys to check out. Developed by Dominic Mitchell, the story is a three-part limited series where zombies are treated and rehabilitated back into society. You gotta give BBC and Mitchell credit here for taking the all too familiar genre and turning it on its head like this. Very cool.
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.
Directed by Jonny Campbell, In the Flesh stars Luke Newberry, Ricky Tomlinson, and Kenneth Cranham. Check out the trailer below and leave your thoughts!
