‘Buried Alive’ – A New Web Series Comes to SYFY UK

So Syfy UK it seems now has it’s own web series which a lauched last week. I had no idea this was coming out but the premise sounds interesting and at ten minutes per episode it’s not going to break into my viewing habits to take a look at the show.

Six episodes have already aired on the website all of which can be found here.
