Space bringing new British zombie series In The Flesh to Canada

InTheFlesh1Space is bringing the new British zombie drama In The Flesh to Canadian screen next month.

In what will be a North American premiere, In The Flesh will hit screens on Saturday, May 18 at 10pm ET.

Committed to educating both the living and the reanimated, the three-part supernatural drama series from the BBC tells the story of zombie teenager Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry, Anna Karenina) and his reintegration back into the local community.

The series is set in the fictional village of Roarton, England after a zombie outbreak in which thousands of the dead have been reanimated after months of rehabilitation and medication.

When the zombies – referred to as partially deceased syndrome (PDS) patients – are deemed ready to return to their homes and families, they’re haunted by the memories of the atrocities they committed while rabid, and also face extreme hostility from the living.

Part 1 of In The Flesh premieres Saturday, May 18 at 10 p.m. ET, with Part 2 airing Saturday, May 25, and Part 3 on Saturday, June 1, only on Space.
