With the MIPTV Media Market underway in Cannes this week, Starz and The BBC were on hand to promote “Torchwood: Miracle Day” – the upcoming fourth season/minor reboot of the sci-fi show.
Along with releasing the first poster (see below) and promo still (see right) for the show, a clip of footage was shown and four poor quality screen caps have popped up online at Combom.co.uk. The highlight? An angry Gwen about to fire a rocket launcher.
At the event, producer Julie Gardner revealed that the deal with Starz, home of “Spartacus” and “Camelot”, means the production values have been upgraded to compete in the environment of a pay premium U.S. cable channel.
Production is continuing apace with shooting on the seventh episode of the ten episode season this week. The show itself is set to return to screens from July 8th.
