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.
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.
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!
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
