A new limited series I’m really looking forward to is on the very near horizon from AMC. The Terror, based on the best-selling Dan Simmons novel, is a fictionalized account of the very real late 1840’s Arctic expedition taken on by the crews of the HMS Erebus and HMS Terror. I’m pumped because the ten episode series stars three of my favorite character actors working today: Jared Harris (Mad Men, The Expanse), Tobias Menzies (Outlander, Game of Thrones), and Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones, Justice League). The Terror kicks off with a two hour premiere on March 26th.
Inspired by a true story, The Terror centers on the British Royal Navy’s perilous voyage into unchartered territory as the crew attempts to discover the Northwest Passage. Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope and fear of the unknown, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction. Frozen, isolated and stuck at the end of the earth, The Terror highlights all that can go wrong when a group of men, desperate to survive, struggle not only with the elements, but with each other.
