1619, Virginia: on what feels like the edge of the world sits the British colony of Jamestown. For 12 years, it has been populated only by men, but the settlement is shaken up when the first women, including Alice (Sophie Rundle), Verity (Niamh Walsh) and Jocelyn (Naomi Battrick), land in this breathtaking wilderness. Twisting storylines follow the disruptive new arrivals as they make an immediate impact and are thrust into a new world of love, desire, power and survival.

While love triangles, bitter rivalries and fierce competition cause conflict for the residents, ultimately they are bound together by their resolute will to survive and thrive in their new lives.

Written by Bill Gallagher, the eight-part drama is set during a unique period of adventure and features an ensemble cast that also includes Max Beesley, Jason Flemyng, Burn Gorman, Dean Lennox Kelly, Gwilym Lee, Stuart Martin, Matt Stokoe and Steven Waddington.
