Almost a year after it lumbered onto the SyFy channel in the States, the George A Romero "inspired" zombie series, Day of The Dead, will be clawing its way onto the thankfully-rebranded Sky Sci-Fi channel (although shouldn't it have been simply Sky-fi?) next week.
A second season of Day of The Dead has yet to be greenlit, so I'm unsure if this is a 10-episode mini-series or just the first season of an ongoing story.
Poised to arrive on Monday (August 15) with a double bill, the plot reportedly revolves around six strangers trying to survive the first 24 hours of a zombie apocalypse.
It certainly sounds like my kind of show, but it also appears - from the American trailer from when the show aired there - that it might be trying to be a comedy.
In my experience, only a handful of creators have successfully pulled off the zom-com balance, so a very high bar has been set by the likes of Shaun of The Dead, Zombieland and Anna and The Apocalypse.
