BBC AMERICA SCORES THREE GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATIONS

It was nominated for Best Mini-Series while its lead actor, Jason Isaacs, scooped a nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series for his role as British Ambassador to the U.S., Sir Mark Brydon.

James Nesbitt also received a Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series nomination for his leading role in Jekyll, a dual-role where he plays a modern-day Dr. Jekyll, the repressed Tom Jackman, and his violent alter-ago, Mr. Hyde.

Both dramas were co-produced by BBC AMERICA. With three nominations, BBC America is ranked #6 among all television networks in total number of Globe nominations.

"BBC AMERICA's three Golden Globe nominations are a testament to the quality and creativity of television coming out of the UK," said Garth Ancier, President, BBC Worldwide America. "It's a triumph that our cable channel can come in 6th among all television networks in total Golden Globe nominations. We're in great company."

In addition to the two BBC AMERICA co-productions, Jekyll and The State Within, the BBC also received a nomination for Jane Eyre and two for Extras, while BBC Films picked up nominations for Eastern Promises and Five Days.

The State Within

When a flight headed for the UK explodes during take off from Washington DC, America believes it may be, once again, under a terrorist attack. Later that day, as both countries struggle to come to terms with the disaster, a diplomatic catastrophe envelops the British Embassy in Washington involving both the British Ambassador, Sir Mark Brydon (Jason Isaacs) and U.S. Secretary of Defense, Lynne Warner (Sharon Gless). The State Within is written by Lizzie Mickery and Daniel Percival. It is a BBC/BBC AMERICA co-production which premiered on BBC AMERICA in February 2007.

Jekyll.

One of the oldest and best stories ever told begins again. In London, an ancient monster, one that terrified, thrilled and titillated the world for over a hundred years, is preparing to return. Jekyll, described by writer Steven Moffat as "somewhere between a modern horror story and The Odd Couple," stars James Nesbitt in the title role. Tom Jackman is a contemporary man with an ancient curse � Mr. Hyde. But he keeps his dark side in check with the very latest surveillance hardware. Just barely keeping one step ahead of his alter-ego, Dr. Jackman has managed to keep his wife and two kids a secret from the vicious Hyde. But what neither of them knows is that an organization with limitless wealth and power is monitoring their every move. Jekyll is a Hartswood Films production in association with Stagescreen Productions for BBC and BBC America. It first aired on BBC AMERICA in August 2007.
