BBC America has greenlit a brand new project called “Intruders.” The series is a thriller/drama about a secret society devoted to pursuing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others.
“Intruders” will be written and executive produced by Glen Morgan, most known for his work on the sci-fi series, “X-Files.” The series will be based on the novel of the same name by Michael Marshall Smith.
“Intruders features an imaginative premise that fits perfectly with BBC America’s signature block of complex and otherworldly dramas led by Doctor Whoand Orphan Black,” BBC America general manager Perry Simon said in a statement. “Glen Morgan has delivered a brilliant script, and we’re thrilled to be working with Glen, Jane Tranter, Julie Gardner and our colleagues at BBC Worldwide Productions on this provocative new series.”
Morgan also added,
“I am excited to be working with Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner who have been so groundbreaking in this genre across both sides of the Atlantic, and I am delighted BBC America has greenlit Intruders to series.”
The show, produced by BBC Worldwide Productions, is set to begin production in early spring 2014 and will be distributed internationally by BBC Worldwide.
