BBC America says:
Smart, sexy and pulsating with suspense – BBC AMERICA’s hit new original series, Orphan Black features rising star Tatiana
Maslany (The Vow, Picture Day), who recently took home the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series. This is the television performance that can’t be missed, so join the conversation when BBC Home Entertainment releases Orphan Black: Season One on Blu-ray and DVD on July 16, 2013.
Maslany portrays Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman, “Beth,” who looks just like her. Sarah takes her identity, her boyfriend and her money. But instead of solving her problems, the street-smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones… but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy, racing to find answers.
The Hollywood Reporter says: “It is, flat out, one of the most intriguingly entertaining new series of the year,” and the New York Post says: “If God and the Emmys are fair, at least six Maslanys will be picking up statuettes this September.” Orphan Black premiered on BBC AMERICA’s Supernatural Saturday programming block on March 30, 2013. The cast includes Jordan Gavaris (Degrassi) as Felix, Sarah’s thorny foster brother and her one true confidante; Dylan Bruce (NCIS) as Paul, Beth’s boyfriend – a decent guy with chiseled features, but more complicated than he appears; Maria Doyle Kennedy (Downton Abbey) as Mrs. S, Sarah’s hard-nosed working class foster mother from across the pond; Michael Mando (The Killing) as Vic, Sarah’s volatile ex, aptly nicknamed “Vic the Dick”; Kevin Hanchard (Republic of Doyle) as Art, a veteran detective working alongside Beth who grows suspicious of her erratic behavior: and Skyler Wexler (Carrie) as Sarah’s seven-year-old daughter. The ten-part clone conspiracy thriller, produced by Temple Street Productions,is co-created by Graeme Manson and John Fawcett, with Manson also serving as writer and Fawcett as director. Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier are executive producers on behalf of Temple Street. Bonus Features include: Character Profiles, Set Tour, and Behind the Scenes featurette.
