Intruders, the newest paranormal thriller series from BBC America, is about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others.
A contemporary, chilling, paranormal tale set in the moody Pacific Northwest, the series spins a fascinating and complex web of drama. As strange, apparently unrelated events start happening, multiple story-lines – a missing wife, an assassin covering his crimes, a child on the run – begin to intertwine to reveal a conspiracy that will forever change our understanding of human nature.
Jack Whelan (John Simm), a former LAPD cop with a troubled and violent history, finds the quiet idyllic life he has crafted with his wife, Amy (Mira Sorvino) shattered when she goes missing. While Jack is consumed with an investigation, which threatens his very core, a sinister agent named Richard Shepherd (James Frain) is embarking on a series of lethal executions. Meanwhile, a distraught little girl named Madison (Millie Brown) runs away from home into a world of danger.
From writer and executive producer of The X-Files Glen Morgan, starring: JOHN SIMM (Life on Mars, State of Play and Doctor Who), MIRA SORVINO (Mighty Aphrodite, Norma Jean & Marilyn, Human Trafficking), JAMES FRAIN (The White Queen, True Blood), TORY KITTLES (True Detective), MILLIE BROWN (Once Upon a Time in Wonderland), the series is based on Michael Marshall Smith’s novel “The Intruders.”
Series premieres on Saturday August 23 on BBC America at 10pm ET/PT, and there will be a special premiere screening and panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday July 25 (8pm PT, Room 7AB)
