In England, the dead aren’t just rising from the grave… They’re returning home.

BBC America’s In the Flesh is the British answer to AMC’s smash-hit, The Walking Dead. The network will air a 3-night zombie extravaganza beginning on Thursday, June 6th at 10/9c. The series, directed by Jonny Campbell (Ashes to Ashes), takes place after an event known as ‘The Rising’ in which the dead rose from their graves. The government begins to rehabilitate the Undead with medicine so they can integrate back into society among the living. While not an action-packed drama like TWD, In the Flesh is treatise on acceptance of those among us who are vastly different from ourselves. Though the series on the surface is about the Living Dead, it could easily be about any group that society views as “other.” The series stars Luke Newberry (Anna Karenina),  Emily Bevan (The Thick of It), and Harriet Cains (Human Beings).

“Here we are, Minister. Not all of us, but those of us who managed to survive.” This zombie show is set in a small English town named Roarton, which has been greatly affected by the Rising. The suburban setting allows for the viewer to feel like this travesty could happen anywhere. Even though the actors have thick accents, this feeling persists. The homes look like any neighborhood in middle America, and the people are your average middle-class citizens. Despite the “cured” zombies shambling around, the town is filled with families. Some are for the rehabilitation of the “Rotters,” while others believe they should be put down like rabid dogs. Since the setting looks like your average town, it’s easy to get sucked into the drama of social politics. With your guard dropped, the sudden acts of violence tend to take you by surprise. (More…)
