Watch a Clip From BBC America’s Zombie Miniseries, In the Flesh
And the zombie onslaught continues…sort of.
The typical zombie craze formula—humans catch virus, humans infect other humans, survivors fend off infected—has recently been shaken up with the idea that maybe there is a cure for zombism (Warm Bodies). Now, BBC America continues to explore the idea of some form of undead rehabilitation with the miniseries In the Flesh.
The show takes place in a post-uprising world where the infected are treated for partially deceased syndrome (PDS), given meds to control their bloodthirsty urges and sent back out to try and reintegrate themselves into society. The infected are often treated with hostility (obviously…they’re still zombies, after all). One of the main characters includes teen Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry).
The series was directed by Johnny Campbell and written by playwright Dominic Mitchell. A second series has already been commissioned up by the BBC, according to Indiewire. Check out a clip below, and catch In the Flesh on BBC America June 6 at 10 p.m.
