DESCRIPTION:
(from BBC America's press release, December 2020) BBC AMERICA'S newest original series The Watch has released a new full-length trailer and series key art prior to its two-episode premiere on Sunday, January 3, 2021 at 8pm ET/PT. In addition, AMC+, the company's new premium streaming bundle, will exclusively premiere the first episode of The Watch on Thursday, December 31, with additional episodes being added weekly timed their linear premiere on BBC AMERICA. The Watch follows an unlikely group of misfits, The City Watch, who are forced to find the guts to save the world, surprising even themselves in the process. The comedic yet thrilling series pits trolls, werewolves, wizards and other improbable heroes against an evil plot to resurrect a great dragon which would lead to the destruction of life as they know it. From lead writer and executive producer Simon Allen (The Musketeers), the modern and inclusive series is inspired by the characters created by Sir Terry Pratchett's famous "Discworld" novels, including the captain of The City Watch Sam Vimes (Richard Dormer, Game of Thrones), the last scion of nobility Lady Sybil Ramkin (Lara Rossi, I May Destroy You), the naïve but heroic Carrot (Adam Hugill, 1917), the mysterious Angua (Marama Corlett, Blood Drive) and the ingenious forensics expert Cheery (Jo Eaton-Kent, Don't Forget the Driver) together with The Watch's own idiosyncratic depiction of Death (Wendell Pierce, The Wire).
