Starz is ready to debut their original series Torchwood: Miracle Day with episode #1 “The New World” set to air on Friday, July 8, 2011 at 10pm ET/PT. The show, which is a ‘reimagining’ of the British series (the original Torchwood) will air 10 episodes this year. Torchwood stars John Barrowman and Eve Myles star in the American version alongside Mekhi Phifer and Bill Pullman. Lauren Ambrose has an extended guest starring role.
The Story: Torchwood: Miracle Day begins with a day when nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging — they get hurt and sick — but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight. With all the extra people, resources are finite. It’s said that in four month’s time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can’t be a natural occurrence – someone’s got to be behind it. It’s a race against time as C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking “What is Torchwood?,” he’s drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human, forever.
