The BBC and AMC have released a trailer for the mystery drama series The North Water. Based on Ian McGuire’s acclaimed novel of the same name, the series follows a group of men with dark and troubled pasts as they embark on an expedition to the Arctic; watch it here…
“Based on the acclaimed novel by Ian McGuire, the five-part series tells the story of Patrick Sumner (Jack O’Connell), a disgraced ex-army surgeon who signs up as ship’s doctor on a whaling expedition to the Arctic. But the ferocity of the elements is matched by the violence of his crew mates, with Drax (Colin Farrell), a harpooner and distinctly brutal force of nature. As the true purpose of the expedition becomes clear, confrontation between the two men erupts, taking them on a journey far from solid ground and beyond the safe moorings of civilisation.”
The series stars Jack O’Connell, Colin Farrell, Stephen Graham, Tom Courtenay, Peter Mullan, Sam Spruell, and Roland Møller.
The North Water premieres on AMC+ on July 15th.
