Okay, so The Terror is directed by Edward Berger but it’s produced by the ever-busy Ridley Scott and his name is the big selling point here. This ten-part TV series will kick-off with a 2 hour premiere on AMC and it should keep audiences on the edge of their seats. It looks much better than I expected (always the pessimist).
Inspired by a true story and adapted from the best-selling novel by Dan Simmons, The Terror centers on the Royal Navy’s perilous voyage 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 one another.
The Terror will have a two-hour series premiere in the US at 9pm on Monday, March 26, 2018.
