IN THE FLESH – a New Kind of Zombie Series. Honest.

inthefleshJust when you couldn’t stand the thought of another show about zombies, along comes IN THE FLESH. These guys actually have a whole new take on the subject, and we’re just plain fascinated by it.

Here’s what BBC America has to say about the show, which premieres Thursday, June 6th, at 10 p.m.:

Zombie teenager Kieren Walker isn’t comfortable in his ‘undead’ state. He didn’t want to come back – he wanted to be dead. After his suicide four years ago, his friends and family thought they’d never see him again

But then, shortly after his funeral, thousands rose from the dead; and after months of rehabilitation and medication, the zombies, now known as PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome) sufferers, are gradually being returned to their homes.

When Kieren returns, he is forced to confront his family, the community that rejected him and haunting flashbacks of what he did in his untreated state. Johnny Campbell directs, Ann Harrison-Baxter produces and Hilary Martin is the executive producer of the three-part series.

We definitely are into the way this sounds. And we’re also impressed because BBC America actually has an interview with the writer-creator, Dominic Mitchell, on the site. Credit where credit is due…what a strange and wondrous concept!

The sneak peak video of the opening show doesn’t seem to be working right now, but maybe it’ll be up and at ’em when you CLICK HERE.
