BBC America Sets Premiere Dates For Wild Things, Ripper Street And Spies Of Warsaw

BBC America has three brand new series slated for the network at midseason. Just after families settle in for a long, cold winter, BBC America will begin airing two chilling dramas and a reality series that should heat things up a bit. During the months of January and February the network will premiere Ripper Street, Spies of Warsaw, and Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan.

The first of the shows to air will be Ripper Street, an historical procedural drama that will follow a police division in London just after Jack the Ripper takes his toll. The eight-part show was created by Richard Warlow and will begin airing on the network starting on January 19 at 9 p.m. ET. The second drama, Spies of Warsaw, will follow Doctor Who alum David Tennant and Made in Jersey’s Janet Montgomery as lovers in Warsaw whose relationship is complicated as WWII approaches. The two-part series will air over two nights, on February 6 and February 13.

Finally, BBC America will premiere Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan, a show that was teased by the network all the way back in February (I guess it was no joke when the network said it would pop up later this year), and will air as an eight-part series following Lost’s Dominic Monaghan. Wild Things will follow the actor as he traipses through the wild, journeying to strange locations to check out even stranger creatures. You can check out that series beginning on January 22 at 10 p.m. ET.

So, keep your eyes peeled. There may be a lot of new TV on many different networks at midseason, but checking out stuff with David Tennant, at least, is generally a good life call.
