Amazon Freevee announces premiere date and trailer for thriller series Boat Story

Amazon Freevee's Boat Story from the producers of Fleabag has revealed a premiere date and trailer.

The BBC co-production, which aired in the UK late last year, follows two strangers played by Daisy Haggard (Breeders) and Paterson Joseph (Timeless) who are devastated when they stumble upon a shipwrecked boat full of cocaine.

Both desperate for a fresh start, they agree to sell the drugs and split the money, but they are pursued by police, masked hitmen and a sharp-suited gangster known only as 'The Tailor '. Haggard is known in the US after her starring roles in Breeders for FX/Sky and Back to Life, another BBC comedy series that was acquired by Showtime.

Boat Story from Fleabag producers Harry and Jack Williams airs on Freevee on Tuesday, March 12. The series scored well in the United Kingdom and attracted around 5 million viewers per episode. In addition to Haggard and Joseph, the ensemble includes Tchéky Karyo (The Missing), BAFTA winner Joanna Scanlan (No Offence), Craig Fairbrass (One Piece (2023)), Phil Daniels (House of the Dragon) and Ethan Lawrence (After Life).

Jury Duty streamer Freevee came on board early to secure an American co-producer for the series (the series also has rights in Germany and launches in that country on Thursday, April 18), and Jack Williams recently said that the SVoD has "always supported our show was" on Boat Story. It was William's first attempt at directing.

The series is executive produced by Christopher Aird (Liar, The Tourist), Sarah Hammond (Fleabag, The Tourist) and Daniel Walker (The Tourist), with Tommy Bulfin and Nawfal Faizullah serving as executive producers for the BBC. Boat Story is produced by Williams' All3Media-backed Two Brothers Pictures in association with distributor All3 Media International.
