In the Flesh -Season 1 of the BBC Zombie is Rising on DVD
Late September street date have these dead walking your way in time for Halloween
Posted by David Lambert
Zombie teenager Kieren Walker isn't comfortable in his 'undead' state. He didn't want to come back - he wanted to be dead. After his suicide four years ago, his friends and family thought they'd never see him again.
But then, shortly after his funeral, thousands rose from the dead; and after months of rehabilitation and medication, the zombies, now known as PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome) sufferers, are gradually being returned to their homes.
When Kieren returns, he is forced to confront his family, the community that rejected him and haunting flashbacks of what he did in his untreated state. Johnny Campbell directs, Ann Harrison-Baxter produces and Hilary Martin is the executive producer of the three-part series.
The BBC's North American distributor, Warner Home Video, has informed that In the Flesh - Season 1 is coming to DVD on September 24th. The first season (or series, as they say in the U.K.) is just 3 episodes, but the program is returning in 2014 for a second season that reportedly will be roughly twice as long (give or take; it hasn't been finalized yet). This first release, coming on a single disc, is priced at $19.98 SRP. English subtitles are included. A list of extras (if any) and package art haven't been provided yet, but stay tuned. Unfortunately there's been no announcement of a Blu-ray Disc version for this title, but if that changes then we'll certainly let you know!
