I Survived A Zombie Apocalypse
Eight contestants will begin an apocalyptic adventure trapped together in a shopping mall, surrounded by the walking dead. The contestants must live by their wits, make difficult decisions, and use urban survival tactics. Their ultimate goal is to avoid the lethal bite of a zombie and stay alive.
During their intense stay, they will face tasks that are necessary for their survival. These tasks are potentially dangerous and will put them in close contact with the undead. The threat will be constant: one bite and they will leave the show in grisly style.
Scotland In a Day
Jack Docherty’s comedy focuses on all kinds of life north of the border, featuring a range of comic characters captured ‘self-shot’ style as they document ‘Scotland’s Day of Destiny’.
As Scotland votes to decide its future, this one-off comedy mockumentary turns the spotlight on a nation poised on the brink between triumph and disaster.
