One aspect of BBC America’s “Supernatural Saturday” lineup that we’ve been looking forward to is the six-part series “Bedlam”, and those of us attending the San Diego Comic-Con will be given a sneak peek of the show during an exclusive U.S. premiere screening and Q&A to be held Friday evening, July 22nd.
From the Press Release:
Star Theo James (Underworld 4: New Dawn, “Downton Abbey”) and creator David Allison (“Boy Meets Girl”) are hosting a premiere screening event for “Bedlam” followed by discussion and Q&A on Friday, July 22nd, from 5:15-6:15 pm.
Bedlam Heights, the stylish new apartment building, has sexy tenants and gorgeous decor. But little do the new residents suspect that behind the luxury fittings lay unimaginable horrors. This is a place tainted by abuse, suffering and death – and the ghosts of its dark and violent past are out for revenge. As the direct descendant of those who ran the asylum, Kate (Charlotte Salt, “The Tudors”) – who both lives and works there – is a prime target. She is surprised by the unexpected arrival of Jed (James) – her adopted cousin. Jed is unique. With a history of mental illness, he’s a troubled man who sees ghosts and visions of the past. Recent messages to ‘Save Kate,’ propel him back into Kate’s life. Can he really ‘Save Kate?’ And from whom, or what, does she need saving?
Everybody has a dark side in this new series also starring Ashley Madekwe (“Secret Diary of a Call Girl”), Hugo Speer (“Skins”) and Will Young (“Pop Idol” winner, “Skins”).
In addition, on Saturday, July 23rd, from 11:00–11:30 am, “Bedlam” star Theo James and creator David Allison will be signing at the BBC America booth (#3629).
“Bedlam” premieres Saturday, October 8, at 9:00pm ET/PT on BBC America.
