From the makers of Downton Abbey, comes Jamestown – the story of the first British settlers in America. We arrive in 1619 at the first settlement on the edge of the breathtaking but untamed Virginian wilderness. For 12 years Jamestown has been populated by men, but the settlement is thrown into disarray when the first women, including Alice (Sophie Rundle), Verity (Niamh Walsh) and Jocelyn (Naomi Battrick), arrive in this land of hope and opportunity. Their determination not only to survive but also to prosper provokes clashes of desire, influence and dominance with exalted men of politics and proud tobacco farmers alike. Relations with the Native Americans offer wealth and advancement but power, greed and corruption inevitably leads to devastating conflict, the fallout of which will shape the New World for centuries to come.

Written by Bill Gallagher, Jamestown is set during a unique period of adventure and features an ensemble cast which also includes Max Beesley, Patsy Ferran, Jason Flemyng, Dean Lennox Kelly, Stuart Martin, Abiola Ogunbiyi, Kalani Queypo, Abubakar Salim and Matt Stokoe.
