Cape Wrath is a British drama television series produced by Ecosse Films which focuses on a family trying to escape its past while confronting an even more uncertain future. The series opens with Danny and Evelyn Brogan along with their two teenage children Zoe and Mark entering a witness protection programme, moving to a bucolic neighbourhood, Meadowlands, to begin a new life. Picturesque and crime-free, Meadowlands appears to be a suburban paradise where the Brogan family can start a new life. However they soon realise that it is not so easy to escape the past and their safe haven becomes a world of paranoia and psychological intrigue with surprises around every corner.
The series is produced by Ecosse Films for Channel 4 in the UK and Showtime in the US, and premièred in the United States on 17 June 2007 at 22:00 EST, on Showtime. The United Kingdom première was on 10 July 2007 at 22:00 BST on Channel 4.
