In a move that surprisingly hasn’t happened sooner, BBC Three has picked up a reality show where contestants must survive a simulated zombie attack. Creatively titled I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse, the competition will trap eight people in a shopping center surrounded by “zombies.” The show is meant to favor those who think quickly and use urban survival tactics. If a contestant is “bitten,” they must “leave the show in a grisly style,” according to the BBC. “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,” said BBC Three entertainment commissioner Ruby Kuraishe, rather Britishly. Details on when the show will air—or when the inevitable U.S. remake will hit these shores—haven’t yet been released.
