‘In the Flesh’ Sneak Peek: See Zombies As You’ve Never Seen Them Before…In Therapy

In the Flesh is not your typical zombie tale.

BBC America has released two minutes from the premiere of their three-part zombie event series featuring the undead showing remorse for their kills, discussing zombie rights and preparing to be reintegrated into society. While the support group setting could easily veer into the absurd, In the Flesh appears to be embracing a dark tone that suits the subject matter. Just from the short scene alone, the sharp observations about humans killing zombies and zombies killing humans are strong enough that it wouldn’t be a stretch to say In the Flesh could be the most human zombie tale yet. Check out the clip below. Are you impressed by the series’ unique set-up?

The series is told from the point of view of Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry), a teenager who must learn how to live again after committing suicide and rising from the dead as a flesh-craving zombie. In the Flesh begins just as Kieren and many other PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome) sufferers are preparing for their reintegration into society.

In the Flesh will premiere over three consecutive nights beginning Thursday, June 6th at 10/9c on BBC America.
