BBC AMERICA ANNOUNCES PREMIERE DATES FOR NEW SERIES COMING THIS WINTER

Ripper Street, Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan and Spies of Warsaw

New York - Friday, November 16, 2012 - BBC AMERICA announces the premiere dates for three brand new series coming to the network this winter. BBC AMERICA co-production Ripper Street premieres Saturday, January 19, 9:00pm ET, original travel-adventure series Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan premieres Tuesday, January 22, 10:00pm ET and mini-series Spies of Warsaw premieres over two nights beginning Wednesday, February 6 and concluding Wednesday, February 13 as part of BBC AMERICA's Dramaville.

Ripper Street

In the aftermath of the Jack the Ripper murders, can anyone keep order in the blood stained London Streets? The eight-part BBC AMERICA co-production created by Richard Warlow, set in and around Victorian London, stars Matthew Macfadyen (Anna Karenina, MI-5, Pride and Prejudice), Jerome Flynn (Game of Thrones), Adam Rothenberg (Alcatraz), Myanna Buring (The Twilight Saga, White Heat) and David Dawson (Luther, Secret Diary of a Call Girl). Haunted by the failure to catch London's most evil killer, Inspector Edmund Reid (Macfadyen) now heads up the notorious H Division, the toughest district in London's East End. Charged with keeping order in the chaotic streets of Whitechapel, Inspector Reid is soon drawn deep into the seedy criminal underworld of Victorian London - where fear always lurks that each new murder could mark the return of The Ripper. Ripper Street premieres Saturday, January 19, 9:00pm ET.

Ripper Street is produced for the BBC by Tiger Aspect Productions, Lookout Point and BBC AMERICA. The project is executive produced by Greg Brenman and Will Gould at Tiger Aspect and by Simon Vaughan at Lookout Point.

Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan

Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan is an exhilarating travel-adventure series that follows actor and wildlife enthusiast, Dominic Monaghan (Lost, Lord of the Rings), as he explores the remote corners of the globe in search of some the most badass animals in the world. In each episode of the eight part series, Dominic takes the viewer along on an intimate journey as he backpacks through the rainforests of Ecuador, the caves of Venezuela, the arid deserts of Namibia and many more exotic locales - to get up close and personal with some of the most dangerous and elusive creatures known to man. Along the way, he'll encounter vibrant locals, quirky experts and a host of creatures that inhabit the strange and wonderfully wild places on our planet. Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan premieres Tuesday, January 22, 10:00pm ET.

Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan is a BBC AMERICA original production and is produced by Cream Productions and Wildfire Television in association with OLN and Channel Five. Executive Producers are Dave Brady and co-executive producers include Jenn Kuzmyk Ruch for Cream Productions and Philip Clarke and Simon Raikes for Wildfire Television. Paul Kilback serves as the series producer.

Spies of Warsaw

David Tennant (Single Father, Doctor Who, Hamlet) and Janet Montgomery (Made in Jersey, Black Swan, Entourage) star in the new Dramaville miniseries, Spies of Warsaw, based on the New York Times bestselling author Alan Furst's acclaimed spy novel. Adapted by renowned Emmy(R)-winning writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, the miniseries follows Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier (Tennant), a decorated war hero of the 1914 war, in the years leading up to the Second World War as he's drawn into a world of abduction, betrayal and intrigue in the diplomatic salons and back alleys of Warsaw. At the same time, the handsome aristocrat finds himself in a passionate love affair with Anna (Montgomery), a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations. Their complicated love affair intensifies as German tanks drive through the Black Forest. Spies of Warsaw, set in Poland, Paris, London and Berlin, combines historical, intelligent narratives, interlaced with flawed, romantic and compelling characters. Spies of Warsaw will premiere over two nights - Wednesday, February 6 and Wednesday, February 13 as part of BBC AMERICA's Dramaville.

Spies of Warsaw is a Fresh Pictures production, executive produced by Richard Fell for Fresh Pictures and Jamie Laurenson for the BBC, co-produced by BBC AMERICA, Apple Film for TV Poland in association with ARTE FRANCE and BBC Worldwide.
