The BBC has obtained the star-studded horror series The Terror from AMC Studios.
Inspired by the true events, The Terror offers a fictionalised account of Captain Sir John Franklin’s lost expedition to the Arctic with the Royal Navy.
Attempting to discover the Northwest Passage, the crew face perilous conditions, scarce resources and unchartered territory on their treacherous voyage.
Freezing, isolated and unable to make it back to safety, The Terror shows what happens when a group of men are forced to struggle against the elements and each other in the desperate effort for survival.
The crew must overcome dwindling hope and crippling fear if they have any chance of making it out of the Arctic alive.
The ten-part series stars Jared Harris (Chernobyl), Tobias Menzies (The Crown), Ciaran Hinds (Game Of Thrones), Paul Ready (Utopia), Adam Nagaitis (Suffragette), Nive Nielsen (The New World) and Ian Hart (Neverland).
BBC’s Head of Programme Acquisitions, Sue Deeks, commented: “The Terror is an atmospheric, character-driven drama, full of menace and foreboding, which will thrill and chill BBC viewers all the way to its icy denouement.”
