First look at 'Ripper Street'
BBC America releases three-minute teaser of new drama
BBC America's new drama, "Ripper Street," is a police procedural with a twist.
Set in London's East End in 1889, the series deftly explores the city and its crimes during the aftermath of the "Jack the Ripper" murders.
Matthew Macfadyen ("The Pillars of the Earth") stars as an inspector determined to separate fact from hype when a woman's body is found and believed to be the Ripper's latest victim. Jerome Flynn ("Game of Thrones") co-stars as a street-smart detective, and Adam Rothenberg ("Mad Money") plays an American with a knack for forensic evidence.
To generate buzz for the series, the basic-cable network has released an online teaser featuring the first three minutes of "Ripper Street." Check it out:
"Ripper Street" debuts Saturday, Jan. 19, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on BBC America.
