Englishmen began colonizing the Americas in 1607. 12 years later, the women of Jamestown crossed the Atlantic to greet the Virginia wilderness … and their soon-to-be husbands.
In AETN Passport’s exclusive new series “Jamestown” — from the makers of “Downton Abbey” — join the lives of Alice, Verity and Jocelyn as they’re thrust into a new world of love, desire, power and survival. Portrayed by Sophie Rundle (“Peaky Blinders”), Niamh Walsh (“Holby City”) and Naomi Battrick (“Waterloo Road”), the three women are duty bound to marry the three men who paid for their passage, but they have little idea of what the future holds or the disruption their arrival will create.
Twisting storylines follow the new arrivals as they make an immediate impact and are entangled in love triangles, bitter rivalries and fierce competition between the residents. Yet, while conflict reigns, the colonists of Jamestown are irrevocably bound together by their resolute will to survive — and even thrive — in their new lives.
