Agatha Christie’s 'And Then There Were None’ to premiere on AETN Nov. 25
Posted 26 Nov 2018
"And Then There Were None,” a thrilling three-part adaptation of Agatha Christie’s best-selling novel, will premiere on the Arkansas Educational Television Network Sunday, Nov. 25, at 8 p.m.
Set in the darkening days of 1939, as Europe teeters on the brink of war, 10 strangers, all with hidden pasts, are drawn together by a mysterious invitation for a weekend on Soldier Island off the coast of England. When they arrive, their hospitable hosts fail to appear, but it rapidly becomes clear they were not invited to the island for pleasure. One-by-one, the guests are killed by an unknown assailant, who marks each murder according to the nursery rhyme "10 Little Soldier Boys.” Soon enough only a few souls remain, and though escape is impossible and trust is in short supply, they must band together to survive.
This British period drama is a faithful recreation of Christie’s chilling tale. Boasting an all-star cast that includes Aidan Turner ("Poldark”), Sam Neill ("Peaky Blinders”), Charles Dance ("Game of Thrones”) and Miranda Richardson ("Harry Potter”), this mini-series will enthrall audiences from beginning to end.
The series will air in three parts:
- Episode one, Sunday, Nov. 25, at 8 p.m. – Ten strangers are drawn away from their normal lives to an isolated rock off the Devon coast. As the mismatched group waits for the arrival of their hosts, the weather sours and they find themselves cut off from civilization, a murderer in their midst.
- Episode two, Sunday, Dec. 2, at 8 p.m. – The guests on Soldier Island are dying one by one, according to the rules of the nursery rhyme "Ten Little Soldier Boys.” As they make plans to combat the killer, the body count continues to rise – and dreadful secrets are teased into the light.
- Episode three, Sunday, Dec. 9, at 8 p.m. – Reduced to half their original number, the surviving guests of Soldier Island are in danger of losing their minds. With the likelihood of survival rapidly diminishing, they must turn to one another for comfort and protection. But, trust is in short supply.
