First Teaser Promo for BBC America’s In the Flesh
BBC America has released its first teaser promo for “In the Flesh,” which is airing as a special three-night premiere event beginning Thursday, June 6th, at 10:00pm ET/PT. Check it out, and let us know if you’re planning to watch. We certainly are!
“In the Flesh” explores a post-zombie-uprising – from the zombie’s perspective. The series follows 18-year-old Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry; Anna Karenina, Quartet), a Partially Deceased Syndrome (PDS) sufferer who, now treated with the medication Neurolax, is deemed ready to return to his parents’ home in the small village of Roarton. Since the passing of the PDS Protection Act, the government has set an agenda of acceptance and tolerance, one that is at odds with the communities abandoned at the time of The Rising and the bloody battle between zombies and humans that ensued. A cauldron of brutal anti-zombie sentiment boils in Roarton, the home of the ‘rotter’ hating Human Volunteer Force (HVF). Can Kieren’s neighbors forgive him for what he did in his untreated state? More importantly, can Kieren forgive himself?
“In the Flesh” takes a fresh approach to the zombie genre, using it to tell a story that tackles real family and domestic issues. It’s about feeling ‘other,’ exploring how chaos is born, and the destructive effects it can have on both the individual and the community.
Emily Bevan (“The Thick of It”), Steve Evets (“Shameless”), Kenneth Cranham (“Upstairs Downstairs”), Ricky Tomlinson (“The Royle Family”), David Walmsley (“Doctors”), and Harriet Cains (Human Beings) also star in this thought-provoking series about redemption, forgiveness, and the battle against prejudice. The three-part series, created and written by Dominic Mitchell, is directed by Jonny Campbell, with Ann Harrison-Baxter serving as producer and Hilary Martin as executive producer.
