Newcomer Luke Newberry leads the cast as Kieren Walker, appearing alongside Ricky Tomlinson (Cracker, The Royle Family) and Kenneth Cranham (Layer Cake).
In The Flesh takes place four years after a zombie uprising and charts humanity's efforts to reintegrate the living dead into society.
One such zombie is Kieren Walker, who must adjust to his new life with the help of fellow zombie Amy (Emily Bevan), his best friend Rick (David Walmsley) and his sister Jem (Harriet Cains).
Skins actor Alex Arnold will also appear in the series, which has been scripted by new writer Dominic Mitchell and will be directed by Jonny Campbell (Eric and Ernie).
In The Flesh will premiere on BBC Three in March.
