A new horror-comedy series called Wreck is coming to BBC Three this autumn, and a newly released image gallery from the show teases a rather unusual slasher killer… One who appears to be dressed as a duck.
According to the BBC: “Wreck 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 3,000-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.”
Oscar Kennedy, Thaddea Graham, Jack Rowan, Harriet Webb, Jodie Tyack, Louis Boyer, Anthony Rickman, Amber Grappy, Diego Andres, Peter Claffey, Miya Ocego, Warren James Dunning, Ramanique Ahluwalia, and Alice Nokes star in Wreck, which was created and written by Ryan J. Brown. All six episodes of the series were directed and executive produced by Chris Baugh (Boys from County Hell).
