TCA Summer press tour news: BBC America has renewed the Tatiana Maslany starring series “Orphan Black” for a third season, greenlighting 10 more episodes for a spring 2015 premiere. Production on the new season kicks off in Toronto in September.
The multi-clone drama is the top of the programming heap for the network’s original scripted programming, with the star earning awards left, right and center. Maslany — who plays over 11 characters — nabbed a Golden Globe nomination and wins from the (BTJA) Critics Choice TV Awards, TCA Awards and Canadian Screen Awards.
“Orphan Black” also stars Jordan Gavaris, Dylan Bruce, Kevin Hanchard, Maria Doyle Kennedy and Evelyne Brochu.
BBC America released their good news today to the TV critics as the network has come off a stellar year in the ratings, thanks in great part to “Orphan” and veteran favorite “Doctor Who.”
BBC America brings British drama “Broadchurch” with David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Jodie Whittaker, Arthur Darvill and Andrew Buchan back. In the oddest TV twist ever, FOX will air an Americanized version of this also starring Tennant (American accent) called “Gracepoint” for the fall starring Anna Gunn, who will play the Olivia Coleman role.
