When C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy, he finds himself unearthing a threat which challenges the entire human race.

The answers seem to lie within an old, secret British institute, known only as Torchwood.

With Rex under attack from all sides, in both the US and the UK, he soon discovers there are forces at work within every level of society, determined to stop Torchwood’s return. As a chain of events across the world links together the most disparate and unlikely individuals – including a surgeon, a killer, senators and CEOs – a new Torchwood team takes shape. But this time, the threat is much closer to home, as they realize that their greatest enemy is mankind itself

Torchwood: The New World premieres next summer on Starz.

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.
