Emily Blunt faces violence of the American West in first teaser for The English

·1 min read

Emily Blunt might be sporting a distinctive Victorian hat, but she's a far cry from a practically perfect nanny in The English.

EW has your exclusive first look at Blunt in the new Prime Video Western drama, debuting the teaser trailer and key art for the series.

In this epic chase Western from Hugo Blick (The Honourable Woman, The Shadow Line), Blunt stars as Lady Cornelia Locke, an aristocratic English woman who teams up with a Pawnee ex-cavalry scout, Eli Whipp (Chaske Spencer) to cross the violent landscape of the American West in 1890.

As they journey closer to their destination of Hoxem, Wyoming, facing increasingly terrifying obstacles along the way, they edge closer to the truth of their intertwined history. In Hoxem, an investigation by local sheriff Robert Marshall (Stephen Rea) and young widow Martha Myers (Valerie Pachner) into a series of bizarre and macabre murders brings Cornelia and Eli face-to-face with their past and the future they must live.
