Ahead of Saturday’s sixth-season premiere of Doctor Who, BBC America announced debut dates for Outcasts and Bedlam.
A post-apocalyptic space opera, Outcasts centers on a group of pioneers who leave Earth to settle on another planet. It stars Eric Mabius (Ugly Betty), Liam Cunningham (Clash of the Titans), Hermione Norris (MI-5) and Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica) in an eight-part story that “explores survival, sex, politics and the drive for power in a new post-Earth era.” The sci-fi drama premieres Saturday, June 18, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Bedlam, which stars Will Young (Skins), Charlotte Salt (The Tudors) and Joanna Page (Gavin & Stacey), is set in Bedlam Heights — an apartment building converted from a pre-Victorian lunatic asylum — whose residents experience the darker side of the building’s history as spirits return to reclaim what’s theirs and seek revenge. Bedlam premieres Saturday, Oct. 8, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
BBC America also announced that it will co-produce another season of Being Human.
