[17.45 - French Time] The BBC has unveiled the details of Outcasts, the new eight-part drama series created by Ben Richards (The Fixer) and produced by Kudos Film and Television.

In 2040, the colony of Forthaven is established on planet Carpathia after the survivors of humanity had to leave Earth. Currently filming in South Africa for transmission on BBC One later this year, Outcasts is directed by Bharat Nalluri and Omar Madha.

In the past, Nalluri directed the premiere episodes of Spooks (2002), Hustle (2004) and Life on Mars (2006). He actually got the idea of Hustle and he's the man behind the style of these three hits which established the reputation of Kudos as an indie.

The cast includes Hermione Norris (Spooks), Daniel Mays (Ashes to Ashes), Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica), Ashley Walters (Small Island) and Eric Mabius (Ugly Betty). Jane Featherstone, Simon Crawford Collins, Faith Penhale and Ben Richards exec produce for Kudos and Matthew Read is executive producer for the BBC.

Wonder if there will be a polar bear in it or a female metamorph with sideburns...
