About the Show

Orphan Black is a Canadian science fiction television series created by Graeme Manson and John Fawcett and starring Tatiana Maslany as several identical people who are revealed to be clones, focusing on Sarah Manning, a woman who assumes the identity of one of her clones, Elizabeth Childs, after witnessing Childs' suicide.

Sarah has always lived the life of an orphan outsider. But a clone is never alone. Sarah hopes that cleaning out a dead woman's bank account will solve all her problems. Instead, her problems multiply – and so does she.

Orphan Black features rising star Tatiana Maslany in the lead role of Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks just like her.

Sarah assumes her identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery.

She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones... but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy and must race to find answers about who she is and how many others there are just like her.

This suspenseful, sexy thriller also stars Jordan Gavaris (Degrassi), Dylan Bruce (As the World Turns) and Maria Doyle Kennedy (Downton Abbey). Orphan Black is executive produced by Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier (Being Erica), Graeme Manson (Flashpoint), and John Fawcett (Spartacus).

Orphan Black was co-created by Manson and Fawcett, with Manson also serving as writer and Fawcett as director. The series is produced by Temple Street Productions in association with BBC America and Bell Media's Space and is distributed internationally by BBC Worldwide.
