Jamestown is the epic story of the birth of a nation.
A group of young women travel thousands of miles from England to become brides for the early settlers in the raw American Continent. The prospect of making a better life in the breath-taking wilderness of Seventeenth Century Virginia is an extraordinary adventure for these pioneers. In building this new world, not only must they must deal with savage nature, but political infighting inside the settlement and increasing unease from the native peoples. Romance, scandal, ambition and intrigue provide an exhilarating homeland for these ‘Maids to be Brides’.
Jamestown will be broadcast on Sky 1 in 2017.
