I do like the premise behind Orphan Black. If you don’t know what it is yet, you’re probably best finding out from this trailer.
The show was co-created and its pilot directed by John Fawcett of Ginger Snaps. He’s cast Tatiana Maslany in the central “role,” and as far as first big decisions go, he seems to have made the right choice.
As a BBC America production I have no idea when, or even if, this show will make it to the UK. We’re still waiting on Copper, I believe, and that series was done months ago.
