BBC America is bring the UK zombie series ““In the Flesh” to the States in a new “3-night Zombie Event” Thursday, June 6 at 10pm/9c.
Can’t wait for the premiere? Now, you don’t have to wait. Here’s the opening 3-minutes that look absolutely fantastic! I’m setting my Dvr immediately.
“In the Flesh follows zombie teenager Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry) and his reintegration back into both the local community and the heart of his family.
After his suicide four years ago, his friends and family thought they’d never see Kieren again. But 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 Kieran arrives, he is forced to confront his family, the community that rejected him and haunting flashbacks of what he did in his untreated state.“
“Your parents? They’re looking forward to seeing you again? … Why wouldn’t they?”
“Because I’m a zombie. And I killed people.”
“No. Kieren… What are you?”
“I am a Partially Deceased Syndrome Sufferer. And what I did in my untreated state was not my fault. ”
