Teaming up with Ginger Snaps director John Fawcett is BBC America with their story of doppelgangers and multiplicity in their latest series Orphan Black. Cube scribe Graeme Manson has penned the series which looks to take you on a suspenseful ride.
Orphan Black features rising star Tatiana Maslany in the lead role of Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Sarah assumes her identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street-smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones…but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy, racing to find answers...
This series sort of just flew under the radar for me but I’m very intrigued to say the least. The idea of just one day coming across someone that looks identical to you is some freaky stuff! Below you will find some new stills along with a great insider video with director John Fawcett and writer Graeme Manson as they talk about the origins of the upcoming conspiracy thriller.
Orphan Black premieres Saturday, March 30, 9:00pm ET/PT, as part of BBC America’s Supernatural Saturday.
