Now you have a way to tell your clone sisters apart.
Orphan Black can expect some clone wars.
Orphan Black to air on AMC, SundanceTV, IFC and WeTV, as well as BBC America.
Game of Thrones wasn’t the only genre show to earn multiple Emmy nods.
If you’ve seen Orphan Black, the BBC America TV show whose season 1 finale airs June 1, you’d know that our antihero, Sarah, is a clone. Now someone is going clone hunting, and it’s up to Sarah and her new-found clone sisters to learn who is behind their deaths—and their lives—before it’s too late. In a phone interview with the creators of Orphan Black, co-creator John Fawcett said, “We saw an amazing chance in concept of cloning to create a character-driven series.”
It’s surprising how good BBC Worldwide’s new show Orphan Black is, especially when you consider the premise: Sarah, a tough woman with a troubled past, meets her clone, Beth, just as Beth is committing suicide. Sarah assumes Beth’s life in order to raid her bank account, then learns that there are other clones—fewer now that they’re being killed off. And it seems that Beth was a cop with a past of her own. Why did Beth commit suicide? How will Sarah escape with Beth’s money? Who’s killing the clones? What does “Orphan Black” mean, anyway? Orphan Black is a puzzle box of a show, one that the audience and the main character are trying to open.
