Ridley Scott’s new TV thriller, The Terror, will premiere in the UK on Tuesday 24 April 2018.
The drama will air on AMC which is available exclusively to BT TV customers and Sky customers who subscribe to the BT Sport channel pack.
Inspired by a true story, The Terror centres on the Royal Navy’s perilous voyage into uncharted territory as the crew attempts to discover the Northwest Passage.
Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope and fear of the unknown, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction.
Frozen, isolated and stuck at the end of the earth, “The Terror” highlights all that can go wrong when a group of men, desperate to survive, struggle not only with the elements, but with each other.
The ten-episode series stars Jared Harris (The Crown, Mad Men) as Captain Francis Crozier; Tobias Menzies (Outlander) as Captain James Fitzjames; Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones) as Sir John Franklin; Paul Ready (Cuffs) as Dr. Henry Goodsir; Adam Nagaitis (Suffragette) as Cornelius Hickey; Nive Nielsen (The New World) as Lady Silence; Ian Hart (Finding Neverland) as Thomas Blanky; and Trystan Gravelle (Mr. Selfridge) as Henry Collins.
“The Terror captures a rare combination of fascinating history, complex and flawed characters, the inextinguishable human spirit and the horror and promise of an uncharted world,” said executive producers and co-showrunners David Kajganich and Soo Hugh. “We are looking forward to bringing viewers into this world.”
Shot in Budapest, Hungary, the series is produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions and Entertainment 360 in association with AMC Studios and is executive produced by Ridley Scott.
