Now that "Orphan Black" has concluded its second season, BBC America is promoting its new original series "Intruders". The network has released the first trailer for the drama series that sees dead people coming back to life.
"The passed will return," so a tagline in the one-minute video reads. A man says, "That this book is in your hands proves death is not a punishment... We do die, but we can return." A young girl creepily tells someone over the phone, "What goes around, comes around."
The scripted series stars John Simm as Jack Whelan, an ex-police officer with a dark, violent past. His wife Amy, played by Mira Sorvino, goes missing. She says in a scene of the snippet, "In the beginning there was death."
From writer/executive producer Glen Morgan ("The X-Files"), the 8-episode drama is described as a contemporary, chilling, paranormal tale set in the moody Pacific Northwest. It is based on Michael Marshall Smith's novel "The Intruders" about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others.
The show is set to debut Saturday, August 23 at 10/9c on BBC America.
