BBC America has quickly become a staple cable channel here around the Dread Central offices, and we have a new trailer for their latest bit of spookery… a creepy tale of cloning known as “Orphan Black.” Dig it!
The series, co-created by Graeme Manson and Ginger Snaps director John Fawcett, portrays Sarah (Tatiana Maslany), an outsider and orphan whose life changes on assuming the identity of a dead stranger who looks just like her.
Look for it to premiere on March 30, 2013, at 9:00pm ET/PT as part of BBC America’s “Supernatural Saturday.”
Sarah hopes that cleaning out a dead woman’s bank account will solve all of her problems. Instead, her problems multiply – and so does she. Experience a whole new side of BBC America with the channel’s next original scripted series, “Orphan Black,” the exciting and ambitious new addition to the Supernatural Saturday programming block. “Orphan Black” features rising star Tatiana Maslany (The Vow, Picture Day) in the lead role of Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Sarah assumes her identity, her boyfriend, and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones… but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy and must race to find answers about who she is and how many others there are just like her.
This suspenseful, sexy thriller also stars Jordan Gavaris (“Degrassi”), Dylan Bruce (“As the World Turns”), Kevin Hanchard (“Republic of Doyle”), and Maria Doyle Kennedy (“Downton Abbey”). “Orphan Black” is executive produced by Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier (“Being Erica”), Graeme Manson (“Flashpoint”), and John Fawcett (“Spartacus”). The drama is co-created by Manson and Fawcett, with Manson also serving as writer and Fawcett as director.
