WATCH: New ‘Bedlam’ Teaser Rolls Out Ahead of Comic-Con

Melrose Place-meets-Sixth Sense“? That’s how TV Guide’s Damian Holbrook describes Bedlam, BBC America’s new thriller about a haunted apartment building populated by sexy twentysomethings. (The complex used to house an insane asylum. Yikes.) The TV Guide site has premiered the new trailer, which you can watch below.

Holbrook himself will moderate Bedlam‘s Comic-Con panel on Friday, July 22 (5:15 pm PT in Room 7AB). Series creator David Allison and star Theo James (Downton Abbey) will participate in a Q&A after the U.S. premiere screening of the first episode, which is set to air on BBC America on October 8.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
