Plot Synopsis

Based on book one of Malorie Blackman's young adult series "Noughts & Crosses," NOUGHTS + CROSSES is a six-episode series set in modern-day London -- a dangerous, alternate world where prejudice divides society. Over 700 years ago the Aprican Empire invaded Europe. Aprica colonized the continent and reached as far as Albion. Albion has been under Aprican rule ever since. This series follows the story of two young people, Sephy and Callum, who are divided by their color but united by love. Sephy is a Cross, a member of the black ruling class and daughter of a prominent politician. Callum is a Nought, a white member of the underclass. The two have been friends since early childhood, but their relationship grows ever more complicated as they come of age. It's the story of two families separated by power and prejudice but forever entwined by fate. NOUGHTS + CROSSES had its U.S. premiere on Friday, September 4, 2020, as Peacock released all six episodes.
