BBC is introducing a band new original series called ORPHAN BLACK, and starring Tatiana Maslany. Created by John Fawcett and Graeme Manson, the show features the young and rising star Maslany as young woman who witnesses the suicide of her doppelganger. Cue conspiracy theories! This sounds vaguely like that short lived CW show RINGER as well as that disastrous movie with Lindsay Lohan I KNOW WHO KILLED ME. The show starts on March 30th, 2013, 9:00 pm EST/PT on BBC AMERICA.

Sarah hopes that cleaning out a dead woman’s bank account will solve all of her problems. Instead, her problems multiply – and so does she. Experience a whole new side of BBC AMERICA with the channel’s next original scripted series, ORPHAN BLACK, the exciting and ambitious new addition to the Supernatural Saturday programming block. Orphan Black features rising star Tatiana Maslany (THE VOW, PICTURE DAY) in the lead role of Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Sarah assumes her identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones… but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy and must race to find answers about who she is and how many others there are just like her. ORPHAN BLACK premieres Saturday, March 30, 9:00pm ET/PT, as part of BBC AMERICA’s Supernatural Saturday.
