Contestants fight to outwit the undead


BBC Three has commissioned a new seven-part reality game show, I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse.

Eight contestants will 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.

It’s a question of teamwork, as the more of them that stay alive the easier it is to thrive in a zombie-eat-human world. The Army is on its way, but how many of the contestants will have what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse?

Zai Bennett says: “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.”

Ruby Kuraishe says: “This is a tongue-in-cheek game show that will really test one’s mettle. I think people will die to be a part of it.”

Andrew Brereton, Executive producer for Tiger Aspect says: “It’s nice to finally have a game show where if you get a challenge wrong, you get your arms ripped off and your brains eaten out.”

I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse is made by Tiger Aspect Productions and Executive produced by Brereton and Sebastian Grant for Tiger Aspect.
