A new slasher horror comedy is coming from BBC Three and BBC iPlayer called Wreck. It was created by writer Ryan J. Brown, and the first teaser trailer has been released. The killer in this slasher series is dressed as a duck.
The series is defined as a tense thriller, “mixing comedy with a slice of slasher, set aboard The Sacramentum cruise ship.” The story follows a 20-year-old new recruit, Jamie, as he infiltrates the 3000-strong crew in a desperate race to find his missing sister. The synopsis reads:
“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 cast includes 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, 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.
Chris Baugh has directed and executive produced all six episodes of the series, and it will be released on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer on October 9th.
