Atlantis Headed To BBC America This Fall
BBB America has always been known for its British imports, but in recent years the network has worked to bring original programming like Copper and Orphan Black to the forefront. Now, the U.S.-based network is going back to its roots and signing on with British channel BBC One to co-produce a series set in the fantastical world of Atlantis.
Burton and Taylor Preview: Helena Bonham Carter And Dominic West Argue And Argue
A few months ago, we learned that the BBC was putting together a co-production with BBC America based on the lives of actress Elizabeth Taylor and actor Richard Burton and the time after the two ended an epic romance. The TV movie will take a look at the couple’s changing attitudes toward one another over the years, set against the backdrop of a play the two appeared together in during 1983, an appearance which was ultimately tumultuous, as the first look at Burton and Taylor shows.
Check Out Dominic Cooper In Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond Stills
We’ve known for a while that the BBC and Sky Atlantic were putting together a story about the life and times of Ian Fleming, the spirited writer of the James Bond novels who actually wheeled and dealed in an intelligence unit and also drank his fair share of martinis. In the States, Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond will air on BBC America, but the series won’t hit the network until the winter of 2014.
Copper Season 2 Trailer Features Guns, Loyalties And High Stakes

The trailer for the second season of the series shows high stakes within New York City, as well as plenty of power grabs and gunfights.
Watch The First 3 Minutes Of BBC America's In The Flesh
Just when you think there’s no more room for zombie content in the universe, the universe makes room for some more of those slovenly and mostly unloveable infected specimens of humanity.

See Dominic West And Helena Bonham Carter As Burton And Taylor For BBC America's TV Movie
Coming to BBC America this fall is yet another made-for-TV take on the romantic relationship of Liz Taylor and Richard Burton. The above photo is our first look at stars Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter, who will play the title characters in Burton and Taylor, not (likely) to be confused with Lifetime's recent TV movie Liz & Dick, which aired last fall.
Matt Smith Confirmed To Exit Doctor Who At The End Of This Year
It's official. Matt Smith is leaving Doctor Who at the end of this year, departing his role as the title character to make way for another actor to fill the Doctor's Tardis when he regenerates. This confirms the rumors that we might be seeing a new Doctor in the near future.

Orphan Black Renewed For Season 2 On BBC America
BBC America’s Orphan Black has been bringing in decent numbers for the cable network, pulling in roughly a million total viewers when counting Live+ numbers. That may not seem like a ton of viewers when compared to other networks, but for a branch of the BBC with a fledgling original programming schedule, BBC America doesn’t see those numbers as half bad. In fact, the network has just announced its second original series, Orphan Black, has been renewed for Season 2.
The Musketeers First Look Photo Shows Musketeers Looking Ready For Adventure
We still have to wait until next year to see The Musketeers on BBC America, but we now have our first look at the stars of the drama. As you might expect, there are four of them. The new photo released shows us Santiago Cabrera (Aramis), Tom Burke (Athos), Luke Pasqualino (D'Artagnan) and Howard Charles (Porthos). That's three Musketeers and a very determined looking D'Artagnan in the center.
The Three Musketeers And Other Characters Cast For The BBC Adaptation
The BBCs, One and America, announced last summer that they would be co-producing a new small screen adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers. The last time the author's most famous work was adapted was by Paul W.S. Anderson with an, uh, interesting 2011 feature film but something tells me that this planned ten part television drama will offer a decidedly different take on the classic.
