New BBC Drama Looks Promising

Jekyll, described by writer Steven Moffat (Doctor Who), as “somewhere between a modern horror story and The Odd Couple,” is set in the present day and stars James Nesbitt (Match Point, Bloody Sunday) in the title role. Dr. Jekyll is a modern man with an old problem — Mr. Hyde. But he’s done a deal with his own devil — a body share — and keeps his dark side in check with the very latest surveillance hardware. Just barely keeping one step ahead of his alter-ego, Jekyll has managed to keep his wife and two kids a secret from the vicious Hyde. But what neither of them know is that an organization with limitless wealth and power is monitoring their every move.

Jekyll premieres Saturday, August 4, 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
