AMC-logoBT TV customers will be the first UK audience to see the upcoming anthology drama series The Terror, an adaption of the bestselling novel by Dan Simmons.

Produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions and Entertainment 360, the series is set in 1847, when a Royal Naval expedition crew searching for the Northwest Passage is attacked by a mysterious predator that stalks the ships and their crew in a suspenseful and desperate game of survival.

The 10-episode drama will be shown exclusively on AMC from year, with episodes broadcast within minutes of the show’s US debut.

“We’re very excited to bring this gripping dramatic story to AMC Global audiences exclusively next year within minutes of the AMC U.S. premiere,” commented Harold Gronenthal, EVP Programming and Operations, AMC and Sundance Channel Global.

“With a distinctive combination of science fiction and historical non-fiction, ‘The Terror’ will complement the outstanding line-up of original series on AMC Global such as ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ and ‘Into the Badlands.’”
