The website for Charlie Brooker's zombie drama Dead Set, which is set for debut some time here on the BBC, has gone live, and it's nothing short of zombie-licious. It has a couple of teasers besides the footage we've already seen and includes background for the whole story. It's set in the Big Brother house, where the contestants are unaware of the rapidly spreading zombie plague outside, that is, until an eviction night. We have the full rundown after the break including one of the teasers, and for more, you can head over to the Dead Set official website.


"Britain has a big problem. The dead are returning to life and attacking the living. The people they kill get up and kill - and it's spreading like wildfire. Curiously, there are a few people left in Britain who aren't worried about any of this, that's because they're th remaining contestants in Big Brothers. Cocooned in the safety of the Big Brothers house, they're blissfully unaware of the horrific events unfolding outside. Until an eviction night when all hell breaks loose.


Kelly, the production runner working on Big Brother finds herself caught in the impossible position of trying to fend off the walking dead alongside the remaining house mates, Davina, herself, a host of former Big Brother house mates, her producer boss Patrick and boyfriend Riq.

Over the ensuing days, in a cruel reflection of the game show they thought they were entering, the contestants fall victim, one by one, to the hungry masses outside. Staying alive requires teamwork - which is tricky when you're a group specifically selected by TV producers to wind each other up."

Can't wait. Charlie Brooker is yet to set a foot wrong in my opinion.

Dead Set is the first zombie movie in a few years I've really looked forward to.
