The 8-part drama is set in 1619 and follows the British settlers as they establish a community in the New World. Carnival Films’ Gareth Neame & Nigel Marchant are executive producing the project with Richard Fell. Lunn has previously scored all seasons of Carnival’s hit series Downton Abbey, as well as The Last Kingdom, which is currently in production for a second season. Jamestown will air in the UK on Sky. No premiere date has been announced yet.

Lunn will also return to score the third season of ITV’s Grantchester, which will premiere in 2017. The composer is also scoring Starz’s upcoming limited series The White Princess. The show is a sequel to 2013’s The White Queen, which the composer also scored, and tells the story of England’s War of the Roses from the perspective of the women. Emma Frost (The Man in the High Castle, Shameless) returns as the showrunner and executive producer of the drama based on Philippa Gregory’s best-selling novel of the same name. The White Princess will premiere in 2017 on Starz.
