BBC AMERICA To Co-Produce Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell For Supernatural Saturday
The series is set during the Napoleonic Wars in an England where magic once existed and is about to return.
Announced this morning, BBC AMERICA is co-producing a new drama series for Supernatural Saturday, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, based on the bestselling novel by Susanna Clarke and adapted by Peter Harness (Wallander, Is Anybody There?). The series will premiere in 2014 on BBC AMERICA.
Nick Marston CEO of Cuba Pictures says:
“The production has now developed into a seven part series and we are delighted that Peter Harness is well on the way to completing all seven hours. He has just delivered episode five and, with Toby Haynes (Doctor Who, Sherlock, Wallander) on board to direct, we are in an excellent position to begin pre-production later this month with production due to start filming in late summer.”
Richard De Croce, SVP Programming, BBC AMERICA says:
“Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is one of our next big series for our Supernatural Saturday block, as Susanna Clarke’s stories transcend borders and are perfect for our US audience. It’s another high-end drama for BBC AMERICA and we’re proud to be working with Cuba Pictures and BBC One.”

Bang Goes the Theory Premieres Tonight on BBC AMERICA
New York Times review says: ““Bang Goes the Theory,” a British import that begins Monday on BBC America, brings a refreshing anarchy to the genre. The four hosts are all about curiosity, seeming indifferent to whether viewers learn anything or even whether the explorations they present have a point. “No quiz later,” they project.”
Bang Goes the Theory premieres after a new Top Gear tonight at 10:20/9:20c.
Doctor Who Original 1963 Theme / BBC Radiophonic Workshop
Still the best theme in regards to how it was made, how it’s one of the first pieces of electronic music ever, and how it’s (basically) the same theme still, 50 years later.
“We made a decision right from the get-go that he would not do disguise in the traditional sense,” Gatiss says. “He actually has a line in ‘The Great Game’ which is ‘The art of disguise is knowing how to hide in plain sight’ and that was because, right from the start, I thought modern day Sherlock Holmes would not put putty noses on, he would basically be standing behind you now and you wouldn’t know he was there. Ben [Cumberbatch] has put on various costumes, but it’s more about being invisible.”
SEASON TWO SET FOR BBC AMERICA’S RIPPER STREET
Announced today, BBC AMERICA’s Ripper Street has been ordered for eight more episodes, with the second season set to premiere in 2014. (If you missed the first two episodes, catch up on VOD or here)
Creator and writer Richard Warlow says: “I am enormously grateful to have been given the opportunity to return to ‘H’ Division once more and will be working tirelessly to ensure that those who have joined us each week will find ever more compelling crime-fighting thrills down on Ripper Street the second time around. The series will move forward into the 1890s; the death rattle of a century coming to a close, the labor pains of a modern world on the rise. It is this sense of climax and calamity that, week by week, our heroes will confront with conviction and heroism.”

BBC AMERICA announced it is co-producing BBC One’s The Musketeers, a new drama inspired by the classic novel by Alexandre Dumas and written by Adrian Hodges (My Week with Marilyn, Survivors, Primeval).
The Musketeers is a fresh and contemporary take on the beloved story and characters created by Dumas. It tells the story of a band of brothers, highly trained soldiers who are assigned to protect King and country. Courageous, impulsive, ready to fight any battle, if the cause is just.
The series shares Dumas’ original 17th century setting and will feature a fresh story each week across its 10 x 60-minute run set for 2014.
BBC America has five Emmy nominations this year!
Today’s Primetime Emmy nominations (July 19) featured a boatload of British imports, including some names very familiar to BBC America viewers. Luther, part of BBC America’s Dramaville block, was nominated for Best Miniseries or TV Movie for its second installment, and Golden Globe winner Idris Elba scored his second consecutive Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie.
BBC America’s The Hour (Abi Morgan) and Luther (Neil Cross) received nominations for Miniseries writing, a category in which they face Doctor Who lead writer/executive producer Steven Moffat, who is nominated for writing Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia. Luther is also up for Best Directing (Sam Miller) against Sherlock‘s Paul McGuigan.
Meanwhile, Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia is also up for Best Miniseries, with stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman vying in the Lead Actor and Supporting Actor races. Sadly, there was no Andrew Scott, who took home a BAFTA for playing the deliciously wicked Moriarty in Sherlock.
Other Brit noms include Downtown Abbey for Outstanding Drama Series and Damian Lewis for Homeland.
