    A bona fide series on UK's E4 digital channel. If anything makes me enjoy Big Brother, the zombie apocalypse should do it.

    Sweet.
    Ahhh, if only BB was actually like that. I'd never miss it. Having said that, this year's BB seems to have consisted of braindead imbeciles shambling around pointlessly; so I don't know if I'd even notice the difference. ;)

    That looks like it could be pretty good.
    I'll definately give it a watch.

    The website's gone live with new footage and info on the cast, crew and story.

    "Britain has a big problem. The dead are returning to life and attacking the living. The people they kill get up and kill - and it's spreading like wildfire. Curiously, there are a few people left in Britain who aren't worried about any of this, that's because they're th remaining contestants in Big Brothers. Cocooned in the safety of the Big Brothers house, they're blissfully unaware of the horrific events unfolding outside. Until an eviction night when all hell breaks loose.

    Kelly, the production runner working on Big Brother finds herself caught in the impossible position of trying to fend off the walking dead alongside the remaining house mates, Davina, herself, a host of former Big Brother house mates, her producer boss Patrick and boyfriend Riq.

    Over the ensuing days, in a cruel reflection of the game show they thought they were entering, the contestants fall victim, one by one, to the hungry masses outside. Staying alive requires teamwork - which is tricky when you're a group specifically selected by TV producers to wind each other up."


    This sounds like fun.

    Jeez, thats some pretty disturbing footage.
    On a site like that I'm half expecting any second to get the screen to flash and hear blood curdling screams and stuff.

    Also, after checking out the 'Unscreen' stuff, I'm seriously creeped out. I know how they did it, but it doesnt make it any less disturbing to see.

    I'll definately be watching this. In broad daylight, behind the sofa.

    Now if the zombies would only just eat everyone that's been on a reality show, thought up and idea for a reality show, or greenlighted a reality show, the world would be a better place. I might actually watch a movie like that.

    I knew something was up with the 'unseen' vid when I paused it and the first letter kept forming. Was surprised by the last bit though.

    Wait, on every night?
    Are they showing the entire thing in a week?

    Regardless, I set the freeview recorder to get this.

    Yup. It's on monday-Friday. Between that, and 2 new episodes of Spooks, it's going to be a damn good TV week.

    I watched. Was entertained. The first episode was a little slow but it's forgivable because it's a series and it's on every night, none of this waiting a week crap.
    One thing I'll say against though is that the camera work/style/whatever is pish. It looks pretty much like some dude with a camera is doing it all, no lighting or bugger all. Which is fine in theory because it's meant to make it more realistic but in practice it just makes everything dreadfully dull and hard to make out.
    Definitely worth watching. I lol'd at zombie Davina. And I want Pippa to die already.

    Heh, certainly a believable bunch of house-mates. Frankly it's not as 'disturbing' as the adverts made out so far, but we do have four more episodes to go.
