Fox developing U.S. version of 'Torchwood'

Posted on

Fox is developing a U.S. version of the cult U.K. sci-fi show Torchwood, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The project is from BBC Worldwide productions with a script by original series creator Russell T. Davies. For the uninitiated, Torchwood chronicles a covert group that investigates and fights alien activity — think a cross between Doctor Who and The X-Files. The U.K. series aired to strong ratings in the U.S. on BBC America. It is likely that some cast members from the U.K. version of the show would appear on the American spin-off, such as John Barrowman.
