Neighbours and Ugly Betty star Alan Dale is set to appear alongside Kelly Brook in Renaissance, a new one-off drama for ITV about zombies which will also form the new production for the second series of Moving Wallpaper, ITV’s fictional account of a TV production team. Dale and Brook will also appear in Moving Wallpaper.
Following the axing of Echo Beach, fictional producer Jonathan Pope (Ben Miller) and his team await their fate at the hands of the merciless Head of Continuing Drama at ITV1, Nancy Weeks (Raquel Cassidy). Despite the end of Echo Beach, a clause in Jonathan’s contract means ITV must now offer Jonathan a pilot to produce – much to Nancy’s annoyance. That show is Renaissance.
Set in present day London Renaissance stars Dale as John Priest. Together with his children, Priest is flying home after a well deserved break but upon arrival things take a dramatic turn for the worse as the plane is attacked by what can only be described as zombies. In the panic John and his children are unwittingly thrown together with another passenger, a young woman called Samantha (Kelly Brook).
As they escape the chaos surrounding the airport they find themselves questioning what terror has been unleashed on the country and what is the true meaning behind the sinister Renaissance
