Featurettes and New TV Spot for Upcoming Series ORPHAN BLACK Give Multiple Reasons to Tune In

Orphan Black wide

March is a great month for returning to long-missing series, but it’s also the month for at least one series premiere, and it could be great. It’s Orphan Black, a BBC America original production, scheduled to premiere directly after the midseason premiere of Doctor Who on Saturday, March 30, in their “Supernatural Saturdays” slot.

To help us in our continuing preparation for the new series, BBC America has released a new TV spot and two great “Insider” featurettes with co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson. They sound a bit like Twilight Zone fans, given the premise, and you know that’s a good thing.

I’ve loved all – okay, all but one, and even then I loved the first season – of the shows that BBC America has aired in its “Supernatural Saturdays” slot, and I’m really looking forward to checking this one out.
