It looks like World War Z is going to give us super-fast fire-ant zombies, but if that's not your cup of tea, BBC America is also delivering some emotionally distraught, introspective zombies. In the Flesh is a three-part British zombie series with a twist.
Humanity has managed to stem the zombie invasion and has even succeeded in turning some of the infected back into relatively normal humans. Now termed 'Partially Deceased Syndrome Sufferers', the recently zombified face discrimination, intolerance and hatred from sections of society. If you like your zombie films to come with a big serving of political analogies, I think you'll get what you want with In The Flesh. You can watch the first three minutes below:
With the zombie genre infecting every avenue of mainstream pop culture, it's probably not surprising something like this has shambled along. From this early viewing, it certainly seems like an unusual and intriguing take on something we're now all too familiar with.
In The Flesh premieres on BBC America on June 6th at 10pm E.T. Two additional episodes will be shown on June 7th and June 8th.
