The BBC is on the run from the zombie apocalypse.
A unique, new twist on the reality game show, BBC Three is taking a group of contestants and putting them through a zombie apocalypse.
The British cabler announced “I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse,” in which eight contestants will begin an apocalyptic adventure trapped together in a shopping mall, surrounded by the walking dead. The contestants must live by their wits, make difficult decisions, and use urban survival tactics. Their ultimate goal is to avoid the lethal bite of a zombie and stay alive.
During their intense stay, they will face tasks that are necessary for their survival. These tasks are potentially dangerous and will put them in close contact with the undead. The threat will be constant: one bite and they will leave the show in grisly style.
It’s a question of teamwork, as the more of them that stay alive the easier it is to thrive in a zombie-eat-human world. The Army is on its way, but how many of the contestants will have what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse?
“It’s nice to finally have a game show where if you get a challenge wrong, you get your arms ripped off and your brains eaten out,” joked Tiger Aspect’s executive producer Andrew Brereton.
