This first trailer for the new BBC America clone drama Orphan Black has grabbed our attention. But we're suckers for any kind of "same actor playing different people "shtick. Orphan Black has an amazing tagline "a clone is never alone" and a totally insane premise that we're excited to break into. It centers around Sarah who finds another women who looks just like her. When the newly discovered twin commits suicide, Sarah slips into her life unknown. But when even more Sarah clones start popping up, things go berserk.
The drama will premiere on BBC America on Saturday, March 30, 9:00pm ET/PT. Here's the full synopsis:
Sarah hopes that cleaning out a dead woman's bank account will solve all her problems. Instead, her problems multiply – and so does she. Experience a whole new side of BBC AMERICA with the channel's next original scripted series, "Orphan Black," the exciting and ambitious new addition to the Supernatural Saturday programming block. "Orphan Black" features rising star Tatiana Maslany "(Cas & Dylan," "Picture Day") in the lead role of Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Sarah assumes her identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones…
but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy and must race to find answers about who she is and how many others there are just like her.
