Possibly a Reason To Start Liking Big Brother?


From Nathan Barley and Guardian writer Charlie Brooker comes Dead Set which is the Channel 4 companion channel E4?s first-ever horror series,, and is to be released exclusively by 4DVD on 3rd November.
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.

Seems to be a nice way to resurrect Big Brother from the dead.

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.

Dead Set Video

Featuring a range of cameo appearances from Davina McCall and several former Big Brother housemates, the series is due to be broadcast on E4 in October.

Ok it is not the most original fusion of reality show and horror, but as this is made by E4 and features the real Big Borther house I bet that this will be something a little different and definitly worth a watch

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.
