TORONTO – Canadian clone drama Orphan Black is reproducing around the world.
The Tatiana Maslany-starrer, originally produced for Canada’s Space channel by Temple Street Productions, has also been sold to KBS Media in Korea, Finland’s YLE, Denmark’s DR and Belgium’s VRT.
The U.K.’s BBC Three earlier acquired the series, as did AXN in India.
“Having been critically acclaimed and a great success for BBC America, it comes as no surprise that this unique series has sparked interest amongst broadcasters from all over the world,” said Paul Dempsey, president, global markets BBC Worldwide, in a statement on Monday.
The conspiracy clone thriller series is headed to a second season on BBC America and Space in Canada, and portrays Maslany in the lead role playing seven cloned characters.
The series is executive produced by Ivan Schneeberg, David Fortier, Graeme Manson and John Fawcett.
BBC Worldwide distributes the series internationally.
