WATCH: Watch Ridley Scott talk new AMC series The Terror
Ridley Scott discusses his new AMC TV Series The Terror in a new promotional trailer for the series.
The new series, which debuts in the UK on Tuesday, April 24th at 9pm exclusively to BT customers, is inspired by a true story and based on the Dan Simmons novel of the same name. It tells the story of the British Royal Navy’s search for the Northwest Passage and documents their struggle with weather conditions, dwindling resources and the unknown. The Terror is the ultimate story of survival, although the series may have a supernatural twist.
It is based on a real expedition that took place in 1845 and resulted in the disappearance of more than 120 crew members. The ships were only discovered some 175 years later, in 2014 and 2016.
Speaking about the series, executive producer Scott says: “It’s a very exotic tale based on fact that makes it doubly interesting.”
Star Jared Harris, who plays Captain Francis Crozier, adds: “There have been more successful trips to the Moon than there have been successful passages of the Northwest Passage. It’s actually very difficult and very dangerous.”
