Back in May the BBC announced a raft of new drama commissions including In The Flesh, an ambitious three-part post-zombie outbreak thriller from new writer Dominic Mitchell. This intriguing new series has finally entered production in the last few days and the BBC have now issued a Press release which reveals a few exciting cast and storyline details about a series which could be one of the drama highlights of 2013.

Directed by Jonny Campbell (Doctor Who, Eric and Ernie), In The Flesh stars newcomers Luke Newberry, David Walsmley and Emily Bevan alongside more familiar names such as Ricky Tomlinson (Brookside, The Royle Family), Kenneth Cranham, and Steve Evets (Rev). The series is set in the aftermath of a mass reanimation of the undead and the attempts of the authorities to integrate the deceased back into society and the families of those who have died to come to terms with the return of their deceased loved ones. The Press release explains that ?with its central themes of redemption, forgiveness, acceptance, denial, and the very essence of what it means to be alive or dead, In The Flesh is a complex but tender look at what happens when families get a second chance at mending their past and working together towards an unpredictable future.?

Says Campbell ?From the moment I read the opening scene I was hooked. Dominic is an utterly fearless and instinctive young writer with an uncanny ability to tell a great story full of humour and humanity in a most original way. An elusive and rare combination in TV drama. What?s most exciting about In The Flesh is that it challenges our pre-conceptions about the standard zombie genre and in so doing almost certainly creates a new one.?

In the Flesh commenced filming on 21st October in the North West of England and will air on BBC3 next year

I'd rather they brought Mongrels back from the dead :)
