Torchwood: Miracle Day promotional pictures


The BBC have issued promotional pictures for Torchwood: Miracle Day - click on the images here for bigger versions. At the moment there is no airdate for the UK (though July 14 was mentioned at the press launch) - it airs in the US on July 8. Included is a synopsis for the 10~part series.
Imagine 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. This is the premise of the highly-anticipated STARZ original drama series, Torchwood: Miracle Day, produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for STARZ, BBC Cymru Wales and BBC Worldwide. The new series, premiering on STARZ on July 8 at 10pm ET/PT, features John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Kai Owen, Mekhi Phifer, Alexa Havins and Bill Pullman.
Special guest starring actors in the cult sensation include: Arlene Tur (Eat Pray Love) and Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under). The 10-episode, hour-long series will also feature an impressive list of guest stars: Wayne Knight (Seinfeld) C. Thomas Howell (Southland), Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters), Nana Visitor (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), John DeLancie (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Mare Winningham (Mildred Pierce) and Frances Fisher (Titanic).
Torchwood: Miracle Day begins with a day when nobody dies. 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.

I think it would be tragic if the USA aired Torchwood before the Beeb :(

Why? It's a US production this time around. BBC ditched it.
