BBC America targets younger viewers with new shows - Yahoo! News: "LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - A high school drama from
the creators of the U.K. hit 'Footballers Wives' and fresh
takes on Robin Hood and Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde are among the new
dramas set to air on BBC America in the next year, the cable
channel said Wednesday.

BBC America general manager Kathryn Mitchell said the
offshoot of the venerable British broadcaster wants to broaden
its appeal to a slightly younger audience, 'but we don't want
to lose those loyal viewers.'"
