It's out on Monday, but here's a sneak preview. This Dead Set malarky might be quite good, eh?
Dead Set is a new five-part zombie horror series set in a fictional Big Brother house and is written by acclaimed writer Charlie Brooker.
The drama is set in a Britain where the dead are returning to life and attacking the living. The people they kill get up and kill – and it’s spreading like wildfire. Curiously, there are a few people left in Britain who aren’t worried about any of this – that’s because they’re the remaining contestants in Big Brother. Cocooned in the safety of the Big Brother house, they’re blissfully unaware of the horrific events unfolding outside. Until an eviction night when all hell breaks loose...
Episode 1 – Outbreak
It’s a typical Friday night eviction on Big Brother. Except it’s not a typical evening; there are reports of disturbances and riots all over the country. BB Producer Patrick has just heard that the live show may be bumped for breaking news on the riots.
Runner Kelly meanwhile, alongside her usual frantic eviction night tasks, is also juggling having to avoid calls from her long-term boyfriend Riq, who keeps ringing to find out exactly why she didn’t come home last night. As tearful Scot Pippa is evicted from the house and interviewed by Davina, all hell is breaking loose outside. There’s a complete massacre of the BB audience as zombies start to attack.
Can Patrick and Kelly get to safety? And just what has happened to Davina?
Remember, a one hour episode on Monday, and then one half hour episode every day until Friday on E4. How cool is that?
