New World Miniseries on Acorn TVNew Worlds, "a gripping story of love, loss and the human price paid in the struggle for justice and liberty," is a four-part British miniseries now available in the U.S. on Acorn TV. Featuring Jamie Dornan of Fifty Shades of Grey, this period drama is set in England and America during the 1680s.

In the turbulent aftermath of the English Civil War, King Charles II's tyrannical rule has led to a climate of violence and fear in England and the American colonies. Amid the chaos, four young, courageous idealists fall in love as they commit to forging a fairer future with blood, passion and urgency. But to achieve this, they must be prepared to pay the ultimate price.
