An extended trailer by BBC America, is revealed for its new sci-fi series “Intruders” starring John Simm (Life on Mars, Exile), Mira Sorvino, Robert Forester and James Frain (Tudors). Like a duplicate or more likely an update of “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”, it is almost a David Lynch-ian sort of tv show in its flat out cryptic nature and obtuseness.
The series is about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others. Produced by BBC Worldwide Productions, from writer and executive producer Glen Morgan (The X-Files), the series is based on Michael Marshall Smith’s novel The Intruders.
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.
Intruders premieres August 23.
