AMC Plans “Orphan Black” Universe Series

Amc Plans Orphan Black Universe Series

A new series set in the same universe as BBC America’s “Orphan Black” is currently in the early development stages at AMC reports Variety.

However, their sources stress this isn’t a reboot, sequel or spin-off – it’s a “completely new story set in the same world”. A writer is currently being sought for the project and are looking to bring in multiple people to pitch different takes.

The original 2013 series ran for five seasons and starred Tatiana Maslany as a woman who discovers that she is a clone and that someone is plotting to kill her and her clone ‘sisters’.

Temple Street Productions, which produced the original series, is on board to produce. It’s not clear if the new show will air on multiple networks, but acclaimed drama “Killing Eve” was simulcast on both BBC America and AMC when it aired.
