Screen Shot 2014-06-06 at 10.51.07 AM

This is one series I am really looking forward to. I was surprise to have found out that not to many are even aware of this series even some Doctor Who fans are not totally clued in to this. Which I found kind of shocking considering that much of the advertising has been done on the BBC America time slot for Doctor Who , Star Trek TNG , Torchwood block. So my good deed is to spread the word and give a glimpse on what looks like it may be one of those silent hits.

Intruders is an upcoming American drama television series based on Michael Marshall Smith's 2007 novel The Intruders. Its 8-episode first season will premiere on the American cable television network BBC America. Eduardo Sánchez and Daniel Stamm will share directing duties.

Production is under way in Vancouver British Columbia for BBC AMERICA’s new original series Intruders, starring celebrated British actor John Simm and Oscar® winner Mira Sorvino. The series is about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others. Produced by BBC Worldwide Productions, from writer and executive producer Glen Morgan (The X-Files), the series is based on Michael Marshall Smith’s novel The Intruders.

A contemporary, chilling, paranormal tale set in the moody Pacific Northwest, the series spins a fascinating and complex web of drama. As strange, apparently unrelated events start happening, multiple story lines—a missing wife, an assassin covering his crimes, a child on the run—begin to intertwine to reveal a conspiracy that will forever change our understanding of human nature.

Simm, who previously starred in the hit BBC AMERICA series Life on Mars, State of Play and Doctor Who, is joined by Sorvino, whose impressive multi-award-winning body of work includes Mighty Aphrodite, Norma Jean & Marilyn and Human Trafficking. The cast includes James Frain (The White Queen, Tron: Legacy) and Tory Kittles (True Detective), and introduces 10-year-old Millie Brown (Once Upon a Time in Wonderland), making her debut in a series lead role.

Under the direction of Eduardo Sanchez (Blair Witch Project, Exists) and Daniel Stamm (13 Sins, The Last Exorcism), the creative team includes acclaimed production designer Mark Freeborn (Breaking Bad). The series is executive produced by Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner for BBC Worldwide Productions, Glen Morgan, and Rose Lam (The L Word).

Jack Whelan (John Simm), a former LAPD cop with a troubled and violent history, finds the quiet idyllic life he has crafted with his wife, Amy (Mira Sorvino) shattered when she goes missing. While Jack is consumed with an investigation, which threatens his very core, a sinister agent named Richard Shepherd (James Frain) is embarking on a series of lethal executions. Meanwhile, a distraught little girl named Madison (Millie Brown) runs away from home into a world of danger.

Mira Sorvino says “I feel I have been haunted, in the best possible way, by Glen Morgan’s deeply compelling script. I am thrilled to undertake what may be one of the greatest artistic challenges of my career, and who better to take this journey with than John Simm, James Frain, and everyone at BBC America and BBC Worldwide Productions!”

“It’s such an intriguing story,” says James Frain. “I was immediately hooked. An actor always responds to great scripts, and Glen Morgan’s adaptation both hits the genre notes and allows for characters of range, complexity, and emotional truth.”

Intruders is a BBC AMERICA original series produced by BBC Worldwide Productions and distributed internationally by BBC Worldwide. The series is part of BBC AMERICA’s slate of dramas including original series Orphan Black, The Game, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Ripper Street, Doctor Who, Atlantis, Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond and In The Flesh.

  • John Simm as Jack Whelan, an ex-police officer with a dark, violent past
  • Mira Sorvino as Amy, Jack's wife, who goes missing
  • James Frain as Richards Shepherd, a murderer who claims to be an FBI agent
