A major new historical drama for Channel 4, the ensemble cast of New Worlds includes Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey, The Fall), Freya Mavor (Sunshine on Leith, Skins), Alice Englert (Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Beautiful Creatures) and Joe Dempsie (Southcliffe, Game of Thrones) as young idealists during the Restoration period.
Set in the turbulent 1680s, the drama takes place on both sides of the Atlantic, as these two young men and two young women commit their lives to a fairer future with blood, passion and urgency. New Worlds is a gripping story of love and loss and the human price paid for the freedoms we enjoy today.
Written and created by Peter Flannery (Our Friends In The North) and Martine Brant and produced by Company Pictures (Skins, Shameless, Elizabeth 1, The Devil’s Whore, The Shadow Line) for Channel 4, New Worlds follows on from their 2008 BAFTA-nominated series The Devil’s Whore.
