Frontier, the six episode drama series exploring the North American fur trade in the late 18th century, will receive its UK premiere on Netflix UK on Friday January 20th, it has been announced.
Frontier follows the chaotic and violent struggle to control wealth and power in the North American fur trade of the late 18th century. Told from multiple perspectives, the series takes place in a world where business negotiations might be resolved with close-quarter hatchet fights, and where delicate relations between Aboriginal tribes and Europeans can spark bloody conflicts.
The six-part drama series, which was created by Rob Blackie and Peter Blackie, was originally commissioned by Discovery Canada as their first original scripted series before Netflix boarded as the global broadcaster late last year. The series is produced by Take the Shot Productions & Factory Backwards and stars Jason Momoa (Stargate Atlantis, Game Of Thrones), Alun Armstrong (New Tricks, Braveheart), Landon Liboiron (Hemlock Grove, Degrassi), Zoe Boyle (Downton Abbey, Sons Of Anarchy), Allan Hawco (Republic Of Doyle, Murdoch Mysteries) and newcomer Jessica Matten.
