Crime thriller The Pact features a top-notch cast of British acting talent, including Laura Fraser (The Loch, Traces), Julie Hesmondhalgh (Broadchurch, Happy Valley), Eiry Thomas (Keeping Faith, The Accident), Heledd Gwynn (35 Days, Ordinary Lies), Aneurin Bernard (Dunkirk, War & Peace), Jason Hughes (Midsomer Murders, Marcella), Rakie Ayola (Noughts + Crosses, Shetland), Abbie Hern (The Twilight Zone, Enola Holmes 2), and Eddie Marsan (Ray Donovan, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell).

When young brewery boss Jack (Aneurin Bernard) is found dead, a chain of events is triggered that draws his four employees — Anna (Laura Fraser), Nancy (Julie Hesmondhalgh), Louie (Eiry Thomas), and Cat (Heledd Gwynn) — into a fragile pact of silence, bound by a secret that will change their lives forever.

Anna’s police officer husband Max (Jason Hughes) investigates Jack’s unexpected death alongside his superior DS Holland (Rakie Ayola), unaware that his own wife and her best friends are at the heart of a conspiracy. While brewery worker Tish (Abbie Hern) becomes increasingly suspicious of her coworkers, Jack’s estranged father Arwel (Eddie Marsan) struggles to conceal dark family secrets.

What really happened that fateful night?

Costars include Mark Lewis-Jones (Gangs of London), Adrian Edmondson (Save Me), Gabrielle Creevy (In My Skin), and Aled Ap Steffan (35 Hours).

A production of Cardiff-based Little Door Productions, the six-part drama, set and shot in Wales, is created and written by Pete McTighe (Doctor Who, A Discovery of Witches), and directed by Eric Styles (Hidden) and Rebecca Johnson (Call the Midwife).

The Pact premieres in the US on Thursday, December 2, exclusively on Sundance Now and AMC+. New episodes will debut weekly through January 6, 2022.
