Airdate: Boat Story

Airdate: Boat Story

New UK thriller Boat Story, starring Daisy Haggard, Paterson Joseph & Tchéky Karyo, comes to BBC First next week.

The six part series produced by Harry & Jack Williams (The Missing, The Tourist, Liar, Baptiste) premieres in the UK next week.

When two hard up strangers, Janet & Samuel, stumble across a haul of cocaine on a shipwrecked boat, they can’t believe their luck. But it soon proves a poisoned chalice when they find themselves entangled with the police, masked hitmen, and a sharply-suited French mobster known only as ‘The Tailor’

Boat Story twists and turns with character-driven, surprising storytelling, hilarious and moving in equal turns. Off-beat humour juxtaposes with high-octane action sequences, on the beautiful but bleak Yorkshire coastline. It’s a series driven by unexpected storytelling and enigmatic characters, but at its heart, Boat Story is about two very ordinary people whom the world has turned its back on. It’s about whether they’re willing, or desperate enough, to do something crazy, to get what they want in life.

Pushed to the very edge, will they be able to play this very dangerous game and come out alive on the other side?

8:30pm Wednesday November 22 on BBC First.
