Orphan Black's Creators on Their Newest Character, Being a "Feminist" Show, and More
When John Fawcett and Graeme Manson first set out to make Orphan Black, all they had was an idea Fawcett has originally pitched in 2001: A woman bears witness as someone who looks exactly like her jumps in front of a train. They didn't know she would be a clone, they didn't have anything planned beyond that simple premise. But the idea would eventually become the exhilarating opening scene of a series that has transfixed fans all over the world since its premiere in March 2013.
What they've developed over the course of nearly two seasons has evolved into an addictive mystery thriller that is progressive in its exploration of subjects and topics that most other TV shows tend to shy away from.
