In The Flesh Gets A New Premiere Date On BBC America
BBC America frequently relies on imports to bring in the big ratings, with the newest import being a miniseries called In The Flesh. Now, the network has announced the official release schedule for the new series, which will premiere on BBC America on Thursday, June 6, a couple of months earlier than was previously announced.
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.
Resident Evil's Sienna Guillory Joins Luther For Season 3
BBC America’s Luther has added a new face to the cast for the upcoming second season. Sienna Guillory, best known for movies like Love Actually and the Resident Evil films in which she plays Jill Valentine, will be coming on board the series to play a love interest for main character John Luther.
Orphan Black New Casting And Start Of Production Announced
Today, BBC America announced the start of production for their new original series Orphan Black. They've also made a number of casting additions to the project, which stars Tatiana Maslany as a woman who assumes the identity of a woman who commits suicide, and who happens to look just like her.
BBC America To Co-Produce The Musketeers For BBC One
All for one and one for BBC One, and co-produced by BBC America, apparently. It looks like Alexandre Dumas' classic story The Three Musketeers is set to get the TV treatment, with BBC America co-producing the BBC One production The Musketeers.
Canadian Sci-Fi Series Orphan Black Headed For BBC America
BBC Worldwide has also picked up Orphan Black, with the intent to distribute elsewhere in the world. In the States, BBC America will pick up the production, adding the upcoming show to the network’s Supernatural Saturdays block. 10 episodes of the show are being created for Season 1.
Chef Race: UK Vs. US Will Have Chef's Racing Across The Country
Americans like their cooking shows. The same can likely be said for the U.K., so it seems both fitting and exciting to learn that a competition series is in the works to pit British chefs against American chefs in what sounds like an Amazing Race-type competition series with a culinary twist.
Hugh Bonneville's Twenty Twelve Coming To BBC America
With the Olympics headed to London this summer, it would stand to reason plenty of specials would come out documenting or at least loosely pertaining to the big event. One of these inevitable projects was Twenty Twelve, a comedy series written and created for BBC 4. Now, to help those across the pond get our fix of British comedies and to also perhaps get us pumped up for the summer games, BBC America is bringing the series to the U.S. for a special showing.
BBC America Provides A Peek At Their First Original Scripted Series, Copper
The crime drama Copper was created by Homicide: Life on the Street's Tom Fontana and Barry Levinson, and Monster's Ball writer Will Rokos. Set in 1860s New York, the show will star Tom Weston-Jones as an Irish-American cop working in the city's Five Points neighborhood.
First Pic From BBC America's Jack The Ripper Series, Ripper Street
The eight-part series revolves around the infamous Jack the Ripper murders in London's East End. The show is set in 1899, in the aftermath of the Ripper's crime spree, and centers on the detectives of "H Division," who were tasked with solving the murders. Of course, Jack the Ripper was never actually caught, so it will be interesting to see how the show wraps things up...
BBC's Being Human Renewed For Season 5
While the North American version of Being Human is still working its way through its second season on Syfy, the original Toby Whithouse-created series has just wrapped up Season 4 across the pond and currently airing on Saturday nights on BBC America over here, as part of the channel’s “Supernatural Saturday” feature.
BBC America Schedules Luther Marathon In Honor Of Idris Elba's Golden Globe Win
One of the best moments from Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards was the showdown between former television nemeses Stringer Bell and Detective Jimmy McNulty. Dominic West (McNulty) walked away empty handed for his performance in The Hour while Idris Elba (Bell) went home with the big prize for his stunning turn in Luther. If you haven't been watching the fantastic BBC America series, now's your chance because, in honor of Elba's award win, BBC there's a Luther marathon scheduled for Sunday afternoon.
