The ten-part series, which is produced by Temple Street Productions, has been acquired by BBC Three in the UK.

The story is about an orphan whose life changes when she witnesses the suicide of a woman who looks exactly like her. She then assumes her double’s identity, boyfriend and bank account and is thrust into the centre of a deadly conspiracy.

Orphan Black, which is also on Bell Media-owned Space in Canada, was co-created by Graeme Manson and John Fawcett. It was recently renewed for a second season.

It is distributed by BBC Worldwide.
