Preview by Jack Folet
STARRING Jaime Winstone (Donkey Punch, Kidulthood) Dead Set is a chilling new horror series in which the dead are returning to life and attacking the living.
Curiously, there are a few people left in Britain who aren’t worried about any of this – that’s because they’re the remaining contestants in Big Brother. Cocooned in the safety of the Big Brother house, they’re blissfully unaware of the horrific events unfolding in the outside world. Until an eviction night when all hell breaks loose…
Kelly (Winstone), a production runner working on a fictional series of Big Brother, finds herself trying to fend off the walking dead alongside her producer boss Patrick (Andy Nyman, Severance), boyfriend Riq (Riz Ahmed, Britz) and the remaining Big Brother housemates.
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 crucial teamwork – which can be tricky when you’re a group specifically selected by TV producers to wind each other up.
Featuring a range of cameo appearances from Davina McCall and several former Big Brother housemates, the series was originally shown on E4.
Featuring a raft of DVD extras such as sneak peeks behind-the-scenes, a tour of the set, special effects featurettes and interviews with cast and crew, Dead Set promises to be a gripping horror bound to keep you at the edge of your seat.
