“Torchwood: Children of Earth” will air on BBC Entertainment in South Africa, UKTV in Australia and BBC America in the U.S. where “Torchwood” has already made an impact.

Also set to air on BBC America and BBC Entertainment in Asia, Africa, India, Poland and Scandinavia is “Any Dream Will Do,” following the search for cast for “Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”
