BBC America Will Stream Making of ‘Orphan Black’ on Facebook Live

It’s increasingly challenging for TV networks to create any urgency surrounding their programming in an era where there are an estimated 400-plus scripted shows on the air and nearly as many outlets for consumers to binge watch whenever they want.

To build up hype, BBC America is going to let fans of the clone-themed sci-fi drama “Orphan Black” watch the making of an episode live on Facebook.

On Tuesday morning starting at around 9 a.m. EDT, the network plans to stream roughly 15 to 20 minutes worth of footage from the “Orphan Black” set on Facebook Live, including the show’s lead actress Tatiana Maslany—fresh off an Emmy win—shooting a scene for an upcoming episode.
