BBC's Comedy Horror Series WRECKED


BBC Three have released a selection of first-look images and announced a host of up-and-coming faces to join the thrilling comedy horror series created and written by Ryan J. Brown.

WRECKED (w/t) is a tense thriller, mixing comedy with a slice of slasher, set aboard The Sacramentum cruise ship. The series follows a 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 (6x45’) series was commissioned by Piers Wenger, Director of BBC Drama, and Fiona Campbell, Controller of BBC Three and is produced by Euston Films, part of Fremantle with support from Northern Ireland Screen. It is executive produced by Noemi Spanos for Euston Films and Tommy Bulfin for the BBC. Chris Baugh (BOY FROM COUNTY HELL) will direct and executive produce all six episodes. 

The series is filming in Northern Ireland and will air later in 2022.
