FIRST LOOK: John Simm & Mira Sorvino in ‘Intruders’ for BBC America – WATCH

Intruders John Simm, Mira Sorvino


Not long after the success of ITV’s Prey, John Simm is set to return to our screens but in a very different role than the framed cop we saw previously.

Now Orphan Black has finished it’s series run for the year, BBC America is promoting new supernatural drama ‘Intruders’ starring Simm and we have all the details….

The series is set to be a chilling, paranormal mystery set in the dark Pacific Northwest – with a missing wife, runaway children and an assassian. We can’t wait to see what is in store.

From the exec producer and writer of The X Files – Glen Morgan – the eight part supernatural drama series stars Simm as ex LAPD officer Jack Whelan, who has a troubled and violent history. However, the quiet life he has created for himself and his wife, who is played by Golden Globe winner Mira Sorvino, is shattered after she goes missing.

The incredibly creepy trailer, which you can watch below, has a tagline of “the passed will return” and a haunting young girl at the end who is speaking on the phone to someone says “what goes around, comes around” – which has us spooked before the series has even started!


Mira Sorvino told BBC America: “I feel I have been haunted, in the best possible way, by Glen Morgan’s deeply compelling script.

“I am thrilled to undertake what may be one of the greatest artistic challenges of my career, and who better to take this journey with than John Simm, James Frain, and everyone at BBC America and BBC Worldwide Productions!”

Alongside the exciting acting cast, working on the show is Mark Freeborn, whose previous work includes Breaking Bad.

The series is based upon the novel by Michael Marshall Smith ‘The Intruders’ and is set to premiere on August 23rd.

    What I think is that ‘Intruders’ is set to be the next Big Thing for BBC America and John Simm and his fellow cast members. I had never heard of the book until news of the TV adaptation broke last year, and wasted no time in familiarising myself with the story (don’t worry, I won’t give anything away), not to mention many other works of Michael Marshall Smith (I’m still discovering them!). Although Marshall only wrote the one book about ex-copy Jack Whelan (that I’ve discovered, at least), I think it has the potential to become every bit as big as ‘X-Files’- the trailer has had more than a million hits on YouTube within days of its release, so what does that tell us? That audiences are ready and willing to be completely creeped out by MMS’s unique take on the world and the strange things that (may) lurk unseen in it… until now.

    Bring it on!

    I meant ‘ex-cop’, of course…
