Is BBC America’s Intruders The Next X-Files

In TV Land we always get about 4 new genre shows that may just make it beyond the first year without getting cancelled. This new show could be one of those rare cases and it sounds just strange enough to be cool, scary and engaging to keep everyone happy.

The first thing that got my attention was the showrunner Glen Morgan who did great work on TV shows X-Files, Space: Above and Beyond, Millennium, The Lone Gunmen and the movie Final Destination. All of these I have loved so good news there.

Then the plot  grabbed me instantly as something I would love to watch and fine out more about. The original story is from a book by Michael Marshall Smith called Intruders.. I just hope that BBC America cast some good actors in this series because it could run for a long time if done right.

BBC AMERICA has greenlit new original thriller series, Intruders, produced by BBC Worldwide Productions. Glen Morgan (The X-Files, Those Who Kill), writer and executive producer, has penned the script based on Michael Marshall Smith’s novel The Intruders. Executive produced by Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner for BBC Worldwide Productions, the series is about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others. Intruders (8×60) is set to begin production in early spring 2014 and will be distributed internationally by BBC Worldwide.

Perry Simon, General Manager, BBC AMERICA said: “Intruders features an imaginative premise that fits perfectly with BBC AMERICA’s signature block of complex and otherworldly dramas led by Doctor Who and Orphan Black. Glen Morgan has delivered a brilliant script, and we’re thrilled to be working with Glen, Jane Tranter, Julie Gardner and our colleagues at BBC Worldwide Productions on this provocative new series.”

Glen Morgan, writer and executive producer, added: “I am excited to be working with Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner who have been so groundbreaking in this genre across both sides of the Atlantic, and I am delighted BBC AMERICA has greenlit Intruders to series.”
