SPOTLIGHT ON NEW 17TH CENTURY EPIC TV SERIES 'JAMESTOWN' WITH STUART MARTIN, MATT STOKOE, MAX BEESLEY, NIAMH WALSH, SOPHIE RUNDLE

  'JAMESTOWN' EPIC SERIES
NEW PHOTOS AND TRAILER
Entering the fray with BBC and ITV for a prime time period set series hit, British Sky One has just announced May 5th as the airing time for their new epic saga JAMESTOWN! A new, longer, trailer and images have also been released for the eight part series with the three lead female cast members and male settlers played by our dear Medici star Stuart Martin, Max Beesley, Dean Lennox Kelly,  and our beloved Village star Matt Stokoe. The cast also includes Jason Flemyng, Shaun Dooley, Steven Waddington and Burn Gorman.

NEW SAGA FROM THE MAKERS OF 'DOWNTON ABBEY'
1619, Virginia: on what feels like the edge of the world sits the first British colony of JAMESTOWN. For 12 years, it has been populated only by men, but the settlement is shaken up when the first women, including Alice (Sophie Rundle), Verity (Niamh Walsh) and Jocelyn (Naomi Battrick), land in this breathtaking wilderness. Twisting story lines follow the disruptive new arrivals as they make an immediate impact and are thrust into a new world of love, desire, power and survival. While love triangles, bitter rivalries and fierce competition cause conflict for the residents, ultimately they are bound together by their resolute will to survive and thrive in their new lives.

  1. Isn't Jamestown, Virginia the settlement that mysteriously disappeared and no one has ever figured out what happened to all the settlers? That would make an interesting, speculative series alright.

  3. The story of Jamestown is an interesting piece of history. I think it would make for some good TV viewing. Hope they don't screw with history though. I know I've said that before, but it is one of my peeves about theatrical interpretations of history.

  4. Downton Abbey kept it true to the time period, I am sure that Jamestown will be the same. It certainly look intriguing.
