NEW YORK - November 1, 2021 - The captivating six-part thriller The Pact is making its US debut on Sundance Now and AMC+ on Thursday, December 2. New episodes are set to debut weekly with the finale premiering Thursday, January 6, 2022.
When young brewery boss Jack (Aneurin Bernard, Dunkirk, War & Peace) is found dead, a chain of events is triggered that draws his four employees Anna (Laura Fraser, Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad), Nancy (Julie Hesmondhalgh, Broadchurch, Happy Valley), Louie (Eiry Thomas, Keeping Faith, The Accident) and Cat (Heledd Gwynn; Ordinary Lies, 35 Diwrnod) into a fragile pact of silence, bound by a secret that will change their lives forever.
Anna's police officer husband Max (Jason Hughes, Marcella, Midsomer Murders) investigates Jack's unexpected death alongside his fierce superior DS Holland (Rakie Ayola, Noughts + Crosses, Shetland), unaware that his own wife and her best friends are at the heart of a conspiracy. While brewery worker Tish (Abbie Hern, The Twilight Zone, Enola Holmes 2) becomes increasingly suspicious of her coworkers, Jack's estranged father Arwel (Eddie Marsan, Ray Donovan, Deadpool 2) struggles to conceal dark family secrets.
What really happened that fateful night?
Shot and set in beautiful Wales, The Pact also stars Mark Lewis-Jones (Gangs of London, The Crown), Adrian Edmondson (EastEnders, Save Me), Gabrielle Creevy (In My Skin, Father Brown) and Aled Ap Steffan (Gangs of London, In My Skin). The Pact, a Sundance Now Exclusive Series, is written and created by Pete McTighe (Doctor Who, A Discovery of Witches) and directed by Eric Styles (Hidden, Casualty) and Rebecca Johnson (Call the Midwife, The Flash). Production company is Cardiff-based Little Door Productions and Lionsgate handles the international distribution.
