The UK’s “In the Flesh” zombie miniseries returns in 2014 with six more episodes, and this new promo for BBC America gives us our first taste of Series 2 along with the other great British shows and ground-breaking American originals that the network has coming up in the new year.
Dominic Mitchell’s “In the Flesh” was first developed by the BBC Drama Production team in Salford and writer Mitchell, who was discovered through “Northern Voices,” a BBC Writersroom competition.
Series 2, which will air on BBC Three as well as the aforementioned BBC America, revisits the cauldron of Roarton, where the living and the undead have reached a fragile peace. After the shocking events of Series 1, Kieren (Luke Newberry) is hoping to get on with his second life, but the arrival of new and explosive characters throws those plans into disarray. Battle lines are drawn, and all will be judged.
Writer Dominic Mitchell said: “I am absolutely delighted and thrilled to be given this fantastic opportunity to continue exploring the characters and world of ‘In the Flesh.’”
Zai Bennett, Controller, BBC Three, added: “’In the Flesh’ was a fantastically original and engaging drama… I’m delighted Dominic and the team will be able to tell more stories from the riveting characters and engaging world they created.”
Kate Harwood, BBC Head Drama, England, concluded: “It is testament to the brilliant and talented in-house drama team in Salford that ‘In the Flesh’ has been commissioned as a series. I am immensely proud of Dominic’s fantastic writing and can’t wait to see how the stories unfold.”
“In the Flesh” was commissioned by Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama, and Zai Bennett, Controller for BBC Three. It is made by BBC Drama Production North, and the executive producers are Hilary Martin and Ann Harrison-Baxter.
