'Torchwood' Adds 'Buffy' Producer, Eyes Debut Date
Exclu: Starz' upcoming U.S. edition of Torchwood is adding some behind-the-scenes talent with experience on fan-favorite shows.
Whedonverse regular Kelly Manners is joining the eagerly anticipated series as a producer. Manners had producer credits on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dollhouse and other shows.
Also, though Starz has not yet announced a Torchwood: The New World premiere date, sources say the network currently expects to introduce Captain Jack stateside in July (that could still change, mind you, so don't, like, plan your vacation schedule around it or anything). Production begins on the show's 10 episodes next month.
Here's some more new credits for Torchwood, each with plenty of geek-TV cred:
-- Bharat Nalluri - Director - Life On Mars; Outcasts
-- Nathaniel Goodman - Lead DP - Heroes; Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
-- Gregory Melton - Production Designer - The Mist; The Walking Dead
-- Skip Schoolik - Post-production Producer - The Walking Dead; Angel
-- Shawna Trpcic - Costume Designer - The Cabin In the Woods; Angel; Dollhouse
