Netflix Announces Brazilian Remake of Charlie Brooker’s “Dead Set”

Back in 2008, a few years before “Black Mirror” existed, Charlie Brooker released a 5-part mini series called “Dead Set” which saw a zombie-apocalypse fold out during an episode of Big Brother. Now, Netflix has announced a Brazilian remake of the show due to launch globally in 2020 called “Reality Z”.

An ode to horror, humor and pop culture, the show narrates in five episodes a zombie apocalypse that imprisons participants and producers of a reality show called OlimpoThe House of the Gods, during its elimination night. The studio becomes a shelter for those who seek salvation in Rio de Janeiro where chaos and hopelessness begin to rule.

Director Cláudio Torres said “My challenge was to turn a five-part anthology miniseries into a series that can unfold into many seasons without losing the spirit, humor and social critique that Charlie conceived in the original Dead Set.”
