The British Broadcasting Corporation is reaching across the Atlantic Ocean for new content for BBC 3.
The network announced that it will air BBC America and Space's Orphan Black in the United Kingdom. The series, which is developed by Canadian independent producer Temple Street Productions, was recently picked up for a second season, with 10 episodes ordered.
The sci-fi drama was created by Graeme Manson (Flashpoint) and John Fawcett (Spartacus). It stars Tatiana Maslany as Sarah, a woman who steals the identity of a dead woman that looks exactly like she does. It is revealed that Sarah is one of several clones. The series looks at what human cloning would mean, both morally and ethically.
The series premiered in March of this year and was quickly renewed for a second season.
Maria Doyle Kennedy, Jordan Gavaris, Dylan Bruce, Kevin Hanchard and Michael Mando also star on the series.
Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier serve as executive producers on the series.
The series is set in New York City, but filmed in Toronto - which some sharp-eyed viewers have noticed (money, license plates and visible plane tickets have given it away).
