STARZ IN BLACK "Torchwood: Miracle Day" Labor Day Marathon - Monday, September 3 from 10am to 11:10pm

One day, nobody dies. All around the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging -- they get hurt and sick -- but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight. "Torchwood: Miracle Day," a STARZ Original series, stars John Barrowman ("Torchwood", "Desperate Housewives") as Captain Jack Harkness, Eve Myles ("Torchwood", "Little Dorrit") as Gwen Cooper, Mekhi Phifer ("ER", "Lie to Me") as Rex Matheson and Bill Pullman (While You Were Sleeping, Independence Day) as Oswald Danes.
