Those bunker-dwelling agoraphobes over at Quiet Earth just dropped us a line with a heads-up on something very cool those of you living in the UK better be on the lookout for. It’s called “Dead Set” and tells of a zombie apocalypse going down at the same time as the hit show “Big Brother” is being filmed. Wacky hijinks ensue.
The show was created by Charlie Brooker, who got to use the actual “Big Brother” house to make the show in. It should be interesting to see how many of the show’s in-jokes will carry over to a U.S. audience since our “Big Brother” is apparently quite different from there’s. Ours doesn’t have zombies, for a start.
The official “Dead Set” site has a very badass trailer for the show you should check out as soon as you can. The site will be opening in full in just over two weeks, with the show set to debut on E4 in October.
