A Conversation with John Simm, Mira Sorvino & Glen Morgan of INTRUDERS
Join us for a conversation with the cast and producer of Intruders: John Simm, Mira Sorvino and Glen Morgan
From writer and executive producer Glen Morgan (The X-Files), Intruders is about a
secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others. A contemporary, chilling, paranormal tale set in the moody Pacific Northwest, the eight part series spins a fascinating and complex web of drama. As strange, apparently unrelated events start happening, multiple story-lines a missing wife, an assassin covering his crimes, a child on the run begin to intertwine to reveal a conspiracy that will forever change our understanding of human nature. Produced by BBC Worldwide Productions, the series is based on British novelist Michael Marshall Smith's 'The Intruders'. Intruders premieres Saturday, August 23, 10:00pm ET.
Jack Whelan (John Simm), a former LAPD cop with a troubled and violent history, finds the quiet idyllic life he has crafted with his wife, Amy (Mira Sorvino), shattered when she vanishes. Jack is drawn deeper into the mystery when his high school friend, Gary Fischer (Tory Kittles), shows up on his doorstep asking for help with a murder case. Initially dismissive of Gary's claims, the more Jack investigates the more complex and surreal his discoveries become. What Jack uncovers leads him down the dark path of his own past and closer to the terrifying revelations about a secret society known as Qui Reverti. In order to conceal the truth, an assassin named Richard Shepherd (James Frain) is embarking on a series of lethal executions and is in pursuit of a seemingly innocent nine-year-old girl, Madison (Millie Brown) a run away with a score to settle who could be the end of them all. With Gary's help, Jack is determined to find and save the wife he loves, at any cost..."Because in the beginning, there was death."
