New reality TV show – I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse – BBC Three
Posted by Rich Cross on February 11, 2015
The proliferation of different types of post-apocalyptic TV show continues – this time into the realm of ‘reality TV’. Taking inspiration from the phenomenon of city-centre ‘zombie tag’ games (such as 2.8 Hours Later) and Charlie Brooker’s ‘zombie and reality TV satire’ Dead Set, BBC Three launches new reality elimination show I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse. The eight-part series begins on BBC Three at 22:00 on Sunday 15 February 2015.
A reality game show set six months in to a zombie outbreak where a group of survivors have to take refuge in an abandoned shopping centre. Survivors just need to avoid the zombies, but the slightest touch will result in death. Anyone still alive in seven days will be rescued by an army helicopter.
