Starz has just acquired rights to develop Torchwood and will share production costs for the rights. John Barrowman will be back as Captain Jack. The 10 episode season will air on BBC 1 and Starz in the summer of 2011 with most of the season taking place in North America. Fox had been trying to get the American version off the ground, but development fell through in April. Creator Russell T. Davies says that the Starz version isn't a "new version" or a "reboot", and he also says that " I absolutely guarantee that you can leap in as a new viewer and be able to find everything. "
