A new TV series set in the “Orphan Black” universe is in development, with Temple Street Productions, the producer of the original series, set to produce the new series, Variety reports. The project is reportedly in the early development stages at AMC.
“Sources stressed, however, that this would not be a spinoff or reboot of the original series, but rather a completely new story set in the same world,” Variety reports. “The producers are currently seeking a writer for the project and are looking to bring in multiple people to pitch different takes on what the show could be.”
Variety adds: “News of the development is made all the more interesting by the fact that it is set up at AMC rather than BBC America, which aired the original in the U.S. It is still too early in the process to tell whether the new show would air on multiple networks under the AMC Networks umbrella, but it was recently announced that Season 2 of the critically acclaimed drama “Killing Eve” would be simulcast on its original network home, BBC America, as well as on AMC.”
