Meet the Cast of ‘Dead Set’

As the grand finale (or maybe last gasp is more apt) of Indie Screams every night this week we have shown an episode of British import Dead Set. The show follows the cast of the reality show Big Brother UK as their 15 minutes of fame is interrupted by a pesky zombie apocalypse.

Miss the series? Don’t worry, we are re-airing the entire mini-series on Halloween. So lock your doors, ignore the trick-or-treaters, grab a bat, load up the shot gun, and settle in to watch Dead Set starting at 7:30 p.m. ET.

In honor of tonight’s finale and the airing of the entire series on Halloween, we want to take a moment to introduce the cast of Dead Set.

The Host


Davina McCall has been the host of Big Brother UK since the show started. And there hasn’t been a single zombie attack.

The Big Brother Cast


The resident house ditz, Pippa (Kathleen McDermott) was excited to delay her departure from the national spotlight. Until she realized that maybe zombies were worse than eviction.


Space (Adam Deacon) seems to regret signing up for embarrassment on Big Brother, but mortification is nothing compared to zombification.


Marky (Warren Brown) makes being an ass look easy, but how fast can that ass run from the zombies?


Do zombies eat dirty old men? Joplin (Kevin Eldon) nicknamed “Gollum” by his housemates hopes not.


As a former nurse, Grayson (Raj Ghatak) should be helping save lives during the zombie apocalypse. But, that would mean the zombies would have to catch the Big Brother frontrunner first.


Angel (Chizzy Akudolu) loves a good joke, but may be too busy bitching and gossiping about the living to get away from the undead. If you watch The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, and of course you do, you may have spotted Chizzy in an episode.


Veronica (Beth Cordingley) is a little pissed that the zombies have usurped her turn in the national spotlight.

The Crew


Patrick (Andy Nyman) is the quintessential television producer who has no qualms about being cut-throat. Literally if necessary.


Being a production assistant is always a lousy job, but for Kelly (Jamie Winstone) her tasks include protecting the cast from zombies. Time to talk about a raise, girl!

The Civilians


Kelly has a boyfriend, Riq (Riz Ahmed), who is determined to battle his way through the night of the dead to his lady. Now, that’s devotion.


Alex (Liz May Brice) is a pistol packing mama with no fear of taking out the undead. You definitely want her on your side.

The finale of Dead Set airs tonight at 12 a.m. ET. The entire Dead Set mini-series airs on IFC on Halloween beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET


Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
