BBCAmerica’s “Dramaville”

Filed under: tv news — Tags: — gina64 @ 4:01 pm

BBCAmerica has announced a sort of new drama anthology series called Dramaville. It will feature 3 six-part series and every episode with be opened and closed by host Idris Elba, the (very, very sexy) star of Luther. Here’s the quick and dirty (you can read the entire announcement here):

The first series is called The Hour. It premieres on August 17 at 10:00 PM, it is a 6-part series, and is described as a 1950s espionage thriller. Stars Dominic West.

Next up will be Luther, the sequel to last year’s successful drama (also called Luther) about a seriously sexy cop who might just be a little cuckoo bananas. It’s another 6-part series, and it premieres on October 5 at 10:00 PM.

Finally, Whitechapel, a modern day crime thriller set in the area of London known for Jack the Ripper and the Kray Twins. Again, a 6-part series, and it premieres on November 2 at 10:00 PM.

I’m really looking forward to them all!

UPDATE! If you missed yesterday’s deadline, do not fret – you can still purchase this t-shirt (albeit at a higher price) through the designer’s website. Click here. This site offers them in more colors and styles. Also, you can order this really neat poster:

Check out today’s shirt at Tee Fury:

Can you name all of the episodes represented? I see Purity Control from The Erlenmeyer Flask; is that the “sea monster” from Quagmire? There’s CSM and the Lone Gunmen, of course, but where’s that creature from the black lagoon from? I see the ship from Paper Clip, Flukie from The Host, Bees!, the cage from Jose Chung’s From Outer Space, the “plam” ice pick thingy, Tooms‘ arms and the worm from Ice. I’m so proud of myself for being able to recognize as much as I did.

Tee Fury shirts are all one-time deals, and available for only one day. You have only 9 hours before this one is gone forever, so get over there now!
