How many of you have watched ''BigBrother'' and thought, "This is the beginning of the apocalypse"? Well, it seems you're not the only one.

'''''Dead Set''''' is the not-so predictable crossover of ''BigBrother'' [[XMeetsY meets]] the ZombieApocalypse, particularly the fast plague-zombies of ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater''. After a ZombieInfectee staggers into the crowd at a BB eviction, the disease spreads rapidly through the studio, leaving just one safe place: the heavily protected house in the middle. The remaining housemates then try to survive inside the house as the infection spreads and the remaining zombies search for flesh. Problem is, when everyone in the house has been chosen specifically because they create tension and conflict with each other to boost ratings, that's easier said than done...

* ShoutOut: As [[RegretEatingMe mentioned above]], the famous "Choke on it!" line from ''DayOfTheDead'' is uttered, and the famous "They're coming to get you, Barbra!" line from ''NightOfTheLivingDead'' is mockingly used in the first episode. Additionally, Veronica at one point makes a reference to the film version of ''{{Film/Misery}}'' ([[TheDitz although she mistakenly refers to it as "Mystery"]]) - specifically, the ankle-breaking-with-a-sledgehammer scene - when the rest of the group are trying to decide what to do with a captive Patrick.

The show was written by TV columnist CharlieBrooker of ''{{Screenwipe}}'' fame and is about as satirical as you might expect. He went on to create another drama series called ''Series/BlackMirror''.
