‘New Worlds’ Channel 4 Lead Cast List and Trailer (Series 1, 2014)

This week see’s the start of Channel 4’s brand-new four part historical-drama, ‘New Worlds’. Missing The Musketeers already? Then perhaps this could be just the show to fill that void for a few weeks.

Set in the 1680’s, the series plays out over both sides of the Atlantic, as the four lead characters Abe, Beth, Hope and Ned commit their lives to a  future of blood, passion and urgency.

Premiering in the UK from 9:00pm to 10:10pm on Tuesday, 1 April, 2014, New Worlds is a tale of love and loss and the human price that was paid for the freedoms enjoyed today.
