New Series Exclusively on SCETV Passport

By Natalyn Klump



JAMESTOWN, an epic eight-part drama from the creators of Downton Abbey, follows the lives of three courageous and dynamic women who leave their dark pasts behind in England and make the trans-Atlantic journey of a lifetime for a new life in 17th Century America.

Taking viewers back to 1619 Jamestown, Virginia, Alice, Verity and Jocelyn are among the first women to arrive in the English colony. Duty bound to marry the three men who have paid for their passage to the New World, they have little idea of what the future holds or the disruption their arrival is about to bring. Twisting storylines follow the 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. All 8 episodes of the first season are now available exclusively on SCETV Passport.
