BIG BROTHER gets a NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD makeover in horror spin-off DEAD SET. The action takes place during a fictional series of the reality TV show, with stories unfolding both on camera in the 'house' and with the staff behind the scenes. When a zombie outbreak occurs the contestants are blissfully unaware inside their secure little bubble, a bubble which soon becomes a fortress when outsiders seek refuge from the walking undead. Inevitably, the infection spreads into the 'house', turning the popularity contest into a scene of carnage, with cast and crew uniting to escape the ultimate 'eviction'.

Jaime Winstone (KIDULTHOOD) stars as production-runner in peril Kelly, with Andy Nyman (SEVERENCE) as hotheaded producer Patrick, Kevin Eldon (HYPERDRIVE) as a disgruntled housemate, and even a surprise appearance from Davina herself. The innovative show is the creation of writer and cult television satirist Charlie Brooker (SCREENWIPE, NATHAN BARLEY) so be prepared for some dark humour, as pop-culture turns zombie and feeds on its own kind.

Now if you said it was about the real house of Big Brother contestants turning into zombies and killing eachother for our entertainment i would have been interested. But good deal, thanks for posting.

To be fair it's not far off, it is quite enjoyable/satisfying watching Big-Brotheresque people being eaten. Although had they put Vanessa Feltz in there, the zombies would have had plenty to eat and it wouldn't have been much of a film.

However, the deal is perhaps a bit pointless for some, as it's available on 4od;

channel4.com/pro…4od

This is good viewing, an ace spoof / production etc. Without being a spoiler / saying too much, Davinia McCaw ( sic ! ) is in it too for added authenticity...and...she is good ! I'll leave it at that. You don't have to be a BB fan to enjoy this.

...ah but slimy31...sometimes it's nice to own a physical dvd etc

Thanks for the link slimy31 - I shall watch this at some point. I like Charlie Brooker's writing, and the Guardian review of the first episode was very positive:

In case anyone's interested, there's something similar coming on the FX channel in November, directed by the guy who made The Shawshank Redemption and The Mist - looks pretty promising:

Fantastic news - I am about half way through reading the Walking Dead Compendium Volume 1 (sadly no longer on offer @ The Book Depository). If anyone who likes either comics, zombies or zombie comics hasn't read it yet, I urge them to rectify that situation immediately.

There is a trailer for the TV show here:

I couldn't agree more, and there are others who don't have the connection necessary for 4OD (me included). But for those who are 'not sure', at least they can watch the first episode and see if it sparks their curiosity...

Awesome series by Charlie Brooker, well worth £4.
Sure you could watch a poor quality 4OD upload but you wont get to see all the behind the scene stuff, deleted scenes etc. that are on the DVD

Fantastic mini series, +heat.

Well worth a look at this price. I thought it was very well done.

As has been mentioned, the Walking Dead US TV show looks like it will be a cracker too.

Of course if you hate zombie shows then this may not be for you.

This show was awful.

Voted hot, thought this was a good mini series.

nice find i like zombie films and have seen this got a good story too

Can't wait for this to start - been waiting ages!

Have some heat for the post OP - even though I've got it already its still a good deal.
