Life in the New World raises challenges in Saints & Strangers

Life in the New World raises challenges in Saints & Strangers

The television show explores the trials and tribulations of our country’s first settlers, the 101 men, women and children who sailed 2,800 miles for 66 days on the Mayflower for a new land they had never seen. Of this group, half were those we know as Pilgrims, religious separatists (“Saints”) seeking religious freedom. The “Strangers” were adventurers seeking better fortunes and opportunity in the new world. The show dramatizes the Pilgrims’ harrowing voyage and arrival to America where, upon landing, they encounter hunger, disease, and the proud but wary Native Americans.  Loyalties are tested and hard-fought alliances between leaders become strained when the Pilgrims suspect a traitor in their midst.

Directed by Paul A. Edwards, the show’s ensemble cast features Ron Livingston (Dinner for Schmucks), Vincent Kartheiser (TV’s Mad Men), Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect), Ray Stevenson (Divergent), Natascha McElhone (TV’s Californication), and Brían F. O’Byrne (Brooklyn’s Finest), Raoul Trujillo (Apocalypto), Tatanka Means (TV’s Banshee) and Kalani Queypo (The New World).

The show premiered on the national Geographic Channel during Thanksgiving weeks to generally positive critical response and solid viewership.

 The DVD includes deleted scenes as a bonus feature.
