BBC Three has given the green-light to I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse, a 7 episode “zombie reality game show”.
I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse follows the 8 contestants as they begin an apocalyptic adventure trapped together in a shopping mall, surrounded by the walking dead. The contestants must live by their wits, make difficult decisions, and use urban survival tactics. Their ultimate goal is to avoid the lethal bite of a zombie and stay alive. The series requires teamwork but how many of the contestants will have what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse?
The format hails from Endemol owned indie Tiger Aspect Productions and was commissioned by BBC Three Controller Zai Bennett and Entertainment Commissioner Ruby Kuraishe. The executive producers are Andrew Brereton and Sebastian Grant. “I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse is a reality event on a huge scale for BBC Three, it promises to be a deadly twist on the genre”, said Bennett.
