BBC America has released new key art for upcoming psychological thriller Intruders, as well as another inside look at what to expect from the series.
Based on Michael Marshall Smith novel The Intruders and adapted for television by Glen Morgan (The X-Files), Intruders follows former LAPD office Jack Whelan (John Simm) as he looks into the disappearance of his wife Amy (Mira Sorvino). However, he soon discovers that her disappearance might be connected to a secret society devoted to immortality, whose members seek refuge in the bodies of others. While Jack continues his investigation into Amy’s final moments at home and what could be behind her disappearance, an assassin (James Frain) embarks on a series of executions, while a little girl (Millie Brown) runs away from home and decides to face the dangers of the world on her own.
In addition to Simm, Sorvino, Frain, and Brown, Intruders stars Tory Kittles (True Detective), Sonya Salomaa (The Killing), and Daryl Shuttleworth (The L Word). The series is the latest original scripted series to come from BBC America, joining comedy Almost Royal and sci-fi drama Orphan Black. The network, which has already ordered new dramas The Last Kingdom and Tatau, is also home to the likes of In the Flesh, The Musketeers, and Atlantis.
Intruders is set to premiere Saturday, August 23rd at 10:00 on BBC America. You can check out an extended series trailer here, as well a behind the scenes look at the show here and a series of four teasers here.
