"Orphan Black" premieres later this month as part of "Supernatural Saturday," and on Friday, March 1, BBC America released a new 30-second trailer to tease viewers about what to expect from the new 10-part original series.
"Orphan Black" stars Tatiana Maslany as Sarah, an outsider and orphan who sees a woman who looks just like her, Beth, kill herself, and when she decides to take over her life in hopes that taking her money will help her, she realizes that she's just made things worse. It turns out that she and Beth are clones—and they're not the only ones, as the new trailer, which you can check out here, shows. "We're clones. We're someone's experiment, and they're killing us off!" That's how the preview begins, and the rest of it shows that while Sarah may have been having problems before, they have nothing on the conspiracy she has stumbled upon. Who was Beth?
Co-creator and writer Graeme Manson previews, "As we get deeper into the show and peel back the layers, we unearth the conspiracy and the philosophy behind those responsible for the circumstances our characters are facing," while co-creator and director John Fawcett teases, "It's a thrill ride with no shortage of hooks; the 'how is she going to get out of this?' question will be answered by Sarah invariable not getting 'out,' but going deeper."
The series also stars Jordan Garvaris as Felix, Sarah's foster brother and confidante, Dylan Bruce as Paul, Beth's boyfriend who is much more complicated than the 'decent guy' he appears to be, Maria Doyle Kennedy as Mrs. S, Sarah's foster mother, Michael Mando as "Vic the Dick," Sarah's ex, Kevin Hanchard as Art, a detective working alongside Beth who becomes suspicious of her behavior, and Skyler Wexler as Sarah's daughter.
"Orphan Black" premieres March 30 at 9 p.m. on BBC America. Will you be tuning in?
