Is it a coincidence that my second-favorite twitterer and overall brainy and lovely ( in a fluffy, moist kind of a way) writer Stephen Fry comments on the death of former Big Brother inhabitant Jade and just one day before I got around starting to watch Dead Set? Here´s a trailer.
I loaded tons of stuff from the assistant director´s DVD collection onto my computer when we were shooting that mystery series two weeks ago. Among those films and series were some English productions, most notably "Lost in Austen" about a girl who gets sucked into the world of Jane Austen and the 2008 Zombie mini-series "Dead Set" which centers around some of the survivors of a zombie rampage. It´s wickedly funny as the set
that´s dead is the British Big Brother house
(of course social and TV critique ensues) but it´s also a quite gory little series which entertains me to no end.
That said and also to ease the pain of other impatient souls: German amazon buyer will probably have to wait till middle of June until Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
will be shipped. How cruel is that?
