SBS has picked up the rights to the horror series Dead Set, a 5×30-minute drama, which tells of a zombie attack on the UK Big Brother house.
The series was shot in HD in the U.K., where it aired on Channel 4 and E4. In Britain, the TV broadcasts were also followed by a nationwide DVD release of a full-length movie version.
Tom Toumazis from the Endemol Group, commented: “Dead Set is clever, thrilling, funny and genuinely scary. Not only is it brilliantly written but it has been cinematically executed and its blackly comic take on the world of Big Brother makes it one of a kind.”
The series features BB host Davina McCall as herself, and several former housemates, despite the fact it was shot in a purpose-built “house.”
Sounds like some zombies need a good turkey slap.
