The BBC and AMC have released a trailer for the mysterious drama series The Noorderwater. Based on Ian McGuire’s acclaimed novel of the same name, the series follows a group of men with a dark and troubled past as they embark on an expedition to the Arctic; check it out here…
Based on Ian McGuire’s acclaimed novel, the five-part series tells the story of Patrick Sumner (Jack O’Connell), a disgraced ex-army surgeon who enlists as a ship’s doctor on a whaling expedition to the Arctic. But the ferocity of the elements is matched by the violence of his crew members, with Drax (Colin Farrell), a harpooner and clearly brute force of nature. When the true purpose of the expedition becomes apparent, the confrontation erupts between the two men and they are taken on a journey far from solid ground and beyond the safe anchorages of civilization.”
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 15.
