Intruders Trailer: New BBC America Drama Looks For Life After Death

What if dying didn’t have to be the end? What if you could return — but in someone else’s body?

That’s what BBC America’s newest drama, Intruders, is looking to explore when it debuts on Aug. 23rd at 10/9c — following the premiere of Doctor Who

Based on Michael Marshall Smith’s novel of the same name and produced by Glenn Morgan (The X-Files), the series focuses on a secret society devoted to pursuing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others. “Welcome back,” greets the trailer. “You’ve been missed.”

Intruders stars John Simms (Doctor Who, Life on Mars) as Jack Whelan, a troubled ex-cop who must confront his past when his wife Amy (Mira Sorvino) goes missing. The show hints at a greater conspiracy with an assassin looking to cover up his crimes (Grimm‘s James Frain) and a ten-year-old girl on the run (Millie Bobby Brown, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland). Tory Kittles (True Detective) also stars.

    Yes. Definitely my kind of show.

  2. Deion says:

    John Simm? Yes and not no.

    Orphan Black is one of the greatest genre surprises I’ve ever seen, so I have to give this a chance too!

  4. Life after death? That’s easy. It’s called Gene Hunt’s world. You get there, play cops and robbers, then you go to the pub for a pint and up you go.

    This sort of looks like the opposite of “Orphan Black”. Instead of several people looking like one and the same, here we have one person looking like several people. :)

    Millie Bobby Brown looks like a revelation. She’s all kinds of creepy in this trailer. Gotta check this out, even though I swore not to add more shows to my summer grid. :)

    I’m in for sure

    After seeing the cat being murdered. I’m out. I’m sick of gore and violence that is intended to shock viewers. It does the opposite, I won’t give this another episode after that.
