The Acquisition! 

In March 5, 2024, BBC brought upon the first look of Noughts + Crosses.

The story tells us the story where Africa colonized the rest of the world. It seemed the time where they outdid the colonization than the Europe.

NBC’s Peacock streaming service has acquired the series. The US Servers will start streaming it from next month.

Until now, the series ran for six episodes.

The Crosses

Noughts + Crosses depicts a parallel universe. In this other universe, Africa or Aprica conquered Europe and enslaved them. In the new London or Albion, slavery seems to have died in the past. But Jim Crow-esque segregation laws help the Black or the “Crosses” maintain the discipline rather than interfering with the politics, wealth, and culture. Whereas the tortured and the party facing racism- the underclass whites or the “Noughts” are up for revolt. Amongst all this scatter, a courtship unravels, which should have never happened.
