TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY

STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES “TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY” PREMIERES FRIDAY,

JULY 8 AT 10PM ET/PT

STARZ will present the original series premiere of “Torchwood: Miracle Day” entitled ‘The New World,’ on Friday ,July 8th at 10pm ET/PT. The one-hour, 10-part series features “Torchwood” alumni John Barrowman (Capt.

Synopsis:

“Torchwood: Miracle Day” begins with a day when nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging — they get hurt and sick — but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight. With all the extra people, resources are finite. It’s said that in four month’s time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can’t be a natural occurrence – someone’s got to be behind it. It’s a race against time as C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy.  The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking “What is Torchwood?,” he’s drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human, forever.
