BBC Three have released a further look at WRECK, the upcoming thrilling comedy horror series created and written by Ryan J. Brown.
WRECK is a tense thriller, mixing comedy with a slice of slasher, set aboard The Sacramentum cruise ship. The series follows 20-year-old new recruit, Jamie, as he infiltrates the 3000 strong crew in a desperate race to find his missing sister.
She was working aboard the same vessel on a previous tour and vanished mid charter. Jamie is initiated into cruise life and gets a crash course on the tribes within the staff: the theatre kids, the mafias and the low-paid workers.
For this overworked and underpaid crew, life below deck can be an odyssey of partying and excess… and they remain oblivious to the bloodthirsty murders taking place on board. Jamie is forced to turn detective and uncover the sinister truth.
The series stars Oscar Kennedy (Ladhood) as Jamie, Thaddea Graham (The Irregulars) as Vivian, Jack Rowan (Noughts + Crosses) as Danny, Harriet Webb (I May Destroy You) as Karen, Jodie Tyack (The Window) as Pippa.
With new faces Louis Boyer as Sam, Anthony Rickman as Olly, Amber Grappy as Lauren, Diego Andres as Jerome, Peter Claffey as Cormac, Miya Ocego as Rosie, Warren James Dunning as Beaker, Ramanique Ahluwalia as Lily and Alice Nokes as Sophia.
Episode 1: Nineteen-year-old Jamie Walsh boards The Sacramentum. He has paid Cormac, a Velorum crew member, to take his position onboard so he can investigate what really happened to his missing sister, who vanished from the same ship three months earlier.
During his induction he meets the ship’s autocratic officers and fellow new recruits, all eager to taste the freedom of being away from home for the first time.
The (6x45’) series begins Sunday 9th October at 10pm on BBC Three.
