Survivors to be shown on BBC America

Posted by Rich Cross on February 11, 2009

All six episodes of the first series of the new Survivors will be shown in the US on BBC America later in 2009, in a deal agreed with BBC Worldwide.

BBC America’s press release describes the series as follows:

The chilling new apocalyptic drama, Survivors, focuses on the world in the aftermath of a virus that has wiped out 99% of the human race. The lonely few who remain struggle to start over in a devastated world where everything that was once safe and familiar is now strange and dangerous. At the center of the story is a bewildered but resilient group of survivors led by Abby Grant (Julie Graham), a woman whose strength comes from a burning need to find out if her young son is still alive. This brave new world brings an opportunity for new beginnings, but also terrible dangers – not just the daily struggle for food and water, but a deadly threat from other survivors.
