BBC America has moved up the premiere of its three-part zombie series co-production In the Flesh. The three night event was originally scheduled to air in August, but it will now begin on Thursday, June 6th at 10/9c, with the following two installments to air on Friday and Saturday.
In the Flesh follows Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry), a teen who comes back from the dead after committing suicide. He and thousands of other zombies (known as the Partially Deceased Syndrome (PDS) sufferers) are rehabilitated and medicated before being returned to their homes. Unfortunately, before they were treated, the zombies were part of a brutal battle that left many humans dead and as a result communities are suspicious of the rehabilitated undead, making Kieren’s attempt to rejoin the living all the more complicated.
In addition to Newberry, the series also stars 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).
