See chilling 1st trailer for BBC series about rehabilitated zombies

It was only a matter of time before zombie shows started popping up in places other than AMC.

In a few weeks, the BBC will debut In The Flesh, a zombie show with a twist. Set in the aftermath of a zombie outbreak in the U.K., the series will follow Kieren (Luke Newberry), a dead teenager who was resurrected as a zombie and has since been rehabilitated somehow by the British government (they apparently call his condition "Partially Deceased Syndrome"). As Kieren attempts to re-enter society (while surrounded by people whose friends and relatives he just ate), he continues to struggle with the old urges that come with being a shambling undead cannibal. 

Check out the trailer below. The show is set to debut on BBC Three starting Sunday, March 17. No word on when (or if) it'll hit the States.
