DESCRIPTION: (from BBC America's press release, February 2014) Production is underway in Vancouver British Columbia for BBC AMERICA's new original series Intruders, starring celebrated British actor John Simm and Oscar(R) winner Mira Sorvino. 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 (8x60) 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.
