A First Look at BBC’s “Intruders”

Here’s an extended look at the upcoming BBC drama Intruders, based on the Michael Marshall Smith novel…a book I’ve been wanting to read, but now have to read. Thanks, BBC!

The series is about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others. It stars John Simm (Doctor Who), Mira Sorvino, James Frain and Millie Brown.

Jack Whelan (John Simm), a former LAPD cop with a troubled and violent history, finds the quiet idyllic life he has crafted with his wife, Amy (Mira Sorvino) shattered when she goes missing. While Jack is consumed with an investigation, which threatens his very core, a sinister agent named Richard Shepherd (James Frain) is embarking on a series of lethal executions. Meanwhile, a distraught little girl named Madison (Millie Brown) runs away from home into a world of danger.

Here’s the trailer…

Intruders premieres August 23 at 10/9c on BBC America.
