    Dead Set....

    For those of you in the UK, you may have seen the trailer for this already. But for our International cousins, you can check it out in your leisure...

    http://www.e4.com/deadset/flash.html

    A horror series from Charlie Brooker, based on Big Brother, its contestants, and what happens when they truly have no idea whats going on in the outside world. Garaunteed, there will be zombies!

    I actually can't wait to see this series, I hope some of the contestants go out in true, zombie-apocolyptic style....If only it were real....

    Anyhoo, Davina Mcall (our over-hyperactive, pitch favourite presenter) makes her debut as a zombie...

    It better be good

    Oh Charlie Brooker wrote it, that's pretty impressive I might check it out.

    My sketchbook, if you really want to see it...

    This looks awesome! Please tell me that it'll air in the US sooner rather than later. Maybe on BBC America?

    It's a show by Channel 4, so only if it's successful in the UK will the BBC buy. So far it isn't even being shown on UK Terrestrial television, though I'm definitely tuning into E4 to see it. It's supposedly only going to be 5 episodes, so it could be nice and snappy.

    And it's an interesting departure for Charlie Brooker, as anyone who's heard of him will have seen Screen Wipe, or know that he co-wrote Nathan Barley, both comedies. Here's his views on My Super Sweet 16, anyway;

    Hell yeah! haha, we had the lights off and everything! Nice and gory, fantastic concept, I think you can catch up online at the E4 website: http://www.e4.com/

    Remember, the next episode is tonight and each night the rest of the week!

    Yeah it was unrelenting, Davina as a zombie was great. Can't wait for tonight's episode. More subtle satire and gore to enjoy.

    Really enjoying this. The mix between all out horror and laugh out loud dialogue in tonights episode (pt4) was fantastic. The American werewolf of zombie films. Highly recommended if you are zombie fans.

    Just saw all of them in a row at the weekend. If you have a tv you owe it to yourself to watch it.
