NEW WORLDS

COMMISSIONED BY Channel 4
CO-PRODUCED BY Company Pictures
CREATED AND WRITTEN BY: Peter Flannery and Martine Brant

A lavish new drama mini-series set in England and America in the 1680s.

From the same Producers as the award winning The Devil's Mistress (also available from Power), Elizabeth I and The White Queen.

Starring Fifty Shades of Grey/The Fall’s Jamie Dornan, The White Queen’s Freya Mavor, Game of Thrones’ Joe Dempsie, Nurse Jackie’s Eve Best, The Tudors/Gosford Park’s Jeremy Northam and Beautiful Creatures’ Alice Englert.

New Worlds is a powerful drama of love, courage, sacrifice and the struggle for liberty and justice.

It is the 1680s. In the turbulent aftermath of the English Civil War, King Charles II’s tyrannical rule has led to a climate of violence and fear in England and her American colonies.

Amid the chaos, four young idealists fall in love as they commit to forging a fairer future with blood, passion and urgency. But to achieve this, they must be prepared to pay the ultimate price.

Beautifully shot, with outstanding performances from a talented cast, New Worlds will immerse audiences in a compelling and visually spectacular story of the people, events and ideas that shaped the world we live in today.
