Created by the producers of Downton Abbey, Jamestown is a new dramatic series that follows the lives of three courageous, dynamic women who leave their dark pasts behind in England, to make the journey of a lifetime to 17th-century America.

This new series is NOT airing on CPTV, or indeed any PBS station. Where can you find it? CPTV Passport!

The entire eight-episode first season of Jamestown will be released on Friday, March 23, 2018 on CPTV Passport. You can binge watch the entire series!

Written by Bill Gallagher (The Paradise, Lark Rise to Candleford), Jamestown is set in Jamestown, Virginia in 1619. Alice, Verity, and Jocelyn are among the first women to arrive in the English colony. Duty bound to marry the three men who paid for their passage to the New World, they have little idea of what the future holds or the disruption their arrival is about to bring.

CPTV Passport is an added benefit to CPTV members, allowing them exclusive access to CPTV’s extensive online library of PBS signature shows and local originals. Any Connecticut Public member who gives $5 a month or more as a sustainer, or an annual gift of $60 or more, has access to the service.

Full of twisting storylines, love triangles, and bitter rivalries, watch Jamestown on CPTV Passport today!
