From the producers of "Downton Abbey" comes a new original British drama about English settlers trying to establish a new life in America, circa 1617.
Here's the first teaser trailer for "Jamestown," which is a reference to Jamestown, Virginia, a location that's historically known as the first permanent English settlement in the New World.
Created by British writer Bill Gallagher (Blood), the eight-episode series stars Jason Flemyng (X-Men: First Class), Sophie Rundle (Peaky Blinders), Max Beesley (Suits), Burn Gorman (TURN: Washington's Spies), Naomi Battrick, Niamh Walsh and Eugene Brave Rock.
"Jamestown" is being produced by Carnival Films, the same television production company behind "Downton Abbey" and NBC's "Dracula."
The show is expected to air in the U.K on the 'Sky One' network later in the year.
Starring Max Beesley, Jason Flemyng and Sophie Rundle, this original British drama charts the early days of the first British settlers in America.
