TeamAkers announce their first documentary, Suranne Jones: Investigating Witch Trials

Ricochet co-production will air on Channel 4.

TeamAkers are pleased to announce their first foray into documentary programming entitled, Suranne Jones: Investigating Witch Trials.
The two 1 x hour programmes are a co-production with Ricochet Television (The Repair Shop, Ben Fogle, New Lives in the Wild) and will air on Channel 4 this spring.

Suranne Jones: Investigating Witch Trials sees the BAFTA-winning actor on a mission to find out more about the most notorious witch trials in history and what they mean in the modern world.

Suranne has been fascinated by the idea of witches for as long as she can remember, and she’s curious about the impact that accusations of witchcraft have had on women throughout history. Her journey begins in Pendle, Lancashire, but ends up taking her beyond the UK to Germany and the United States to perhaps the most notorious witch trial site, Salem.

The programme came from an original idea by Laurence Akers who will also serve as Executive Producer.
