Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

BBC jumps on zombie bandwagon.

Everyone knows that zombies are the new vamps right now—even the BBC, which has just announced it's also making a brand-new zombie drama series called In the Flesh that looks like it'll mix some good ol' Shaun of the Dead fun with some Walking Dead horror and drama.

...
...begins after the Zombie Uprising has been quelled by the Human Volunteer Force and life is starting to return to normal. Any surviving zombies have been captured, medicated, held in an NHS holding facility in Norfolk and are being slowly re-integrated back into society, with the help of contact lenses and cover up mousse. The story follows teenager Kieran Walker and boldly goes where no zombie drama has gone before.
I've been wondering why there aren't more zombie shows in the wake of TWD's stunning success. Not that I'm interested in comic takes on the topic. I like my zombie stories as serious as a heart attack caused by having your still-beating heart ripped out and devoured before your eyes.
