BBC America has picked up new Canadian sci-fi drama series Orphan Black. The move comes two weeks after Canada’s Bell Media greenlighted 10 episodes of Orphan Black for its genre channel Space. With BBC Worldwide distributing the series internationally, a pickup by BBC America seems logical. From Toronto’s Temple Street Prods., Orphan Black, co-created by Graeme Manson (Flashpoint) and John Fawcett (Spartacus), centers on a street-wise chameleon, who discovers that she is a clone. The series will premiere in the US as part of BBC Ameriica’s Supernatural Saturdays programming block. Production on the new series begins in Toronto this fall.
