Bill Pullman, Mekhi Phifer join franchise regulars for 10-part STARZ mini-series
After giving us two quick teasers without any actual footage, BBC and Starz have finally unleashed a look at the upcoming mini-series "Torchwood: Miracle Day."
The new series in the long-running franchise spun off from "Doctor Who" features "Torchwood" vets John Barrowman, Eve Myles, and Kai Owen, plus new faces Mekhi Phifer ("E.R."), Alexa Havins ("All My Children") and Bill Pullman ("Independence Day").

An American agent (Phifer) investigates the possible conspiracy behind the mystery and it leads him to the Torchwood Institute and franchise regulars Barrowman and Myles.

Thomas Howell ("Southland"), Ernie Hudson ("Ghostbusters"), Nana Visitor ("Star Trek: Deep Space Nine"), John DeLancie ("Star Trek: The Next Generation"), Mare Winningham ("Mildred Pierce") and Frances Fisher ("Titanic").
