Season 1 | Episode 1 | Original Airdate: June 23rd, 2016 | 10:00PM
After 13 years held captive by her kidnapper, Ivy Moxam escapes from the cellar that has been her prison. Once at the police station, she’s interviewed by Detective Inspector Elliott Carne and Detective Sergeant Lisa Merchant. Ivy states to have never been let out all these years, but reveals very little about her captor. As the police locates the house where Ivy’s been held captive, her abductor has fled and destroyed most of the evidence. Looking to Ivy for leads in the case, it’s evident to the police that her statement has many loose ends. What is she hiding and why is she protecting the man who has harmed her?

BBC America says, “Thirteen is an emotional rollercoaster that explores how to pick up the threads of a life half-lived, while questioning who to trust when you can’t even trust yourself.”
