TCA 2010: U.S. Torchwood gets a title: ‘The New World’

During Starz’s TCA panel, it was revealed that the network’s upcoming Torchwood reboot will be called Torchwood: The New World. Series creator Russell T. Davies also offered some insight into the 10-episode series [via the live feed]:

The new story will follow a CIA agent (Rex) and analyst (Ester) who tackle an alien-related global issue. Torchwood, having been destroyed and disbanded, is “like a legend now … it’s like something that’s ceased to exist and is now spoken of only in whispers.” Soon, Rex and Ester are on the run and are seeking out the help of Captain Jack and Gwen.

“The two teams coming together is a big part of the story — are they friends or enemies? There’s a lot of sparks and excitement.”

“We definitely have a really big story to tell,” added executive producer Julie Gardner. “It’s absolutely rebooted to welcome in a new audience.”

In related news, Davies has brought on board a few writers for the fourth season/U.S. series: John Shiban (Breaking Bad, Supernatural), Jane Espenson (Battlestar Galactica, Caprica), Doris Egan (“House”, “Dark Angel”) and former Torchwood writer John Fay.

And lastly, two posters advertising the series are on display at TCA. Check them out in full after the jump.
