Dead Set E4 Horror, Jaime Winstone

Great concept for this E4’s first horror series, Dead Set, written by Charlie Brooker, tunes in to the seemingly always popular zombie genre with a take on the shopping mall style of Dawn of the Dead but with the twist of setting the action in the Big Brother house. The series starts with Britain in a state of turmoil (just like today really), where the dead are actually returning to life and causing a huge amount of death and destruction, the only people who are unconcerned about this are the residents of the big brother house, until that is the latest round of evictions – latest evictee Pippa notices that something strange seems to going on during her interview with show host Davina McCall…

With the zombies on the attack and making short work of the BB audience, the remaining members inside the house need to band together (difficult given that most of them can’t stand each other!) to try and simply survive.

There is a  cameo from regular show host Davina and there are also appearances from former residents of the house.
