CBC has scheduled the world premiere of Alias Grace, based on the award-winning novel by Margaret Atwood, for September 25 at 9 p.m.
From Halfire Entertainment, Alias Grace will stream globally outside of Canada on Netflix in fall 2017, following the CBC premiere. The six-hour miniseries tells the story of Grace Marks (Sarah Gadon), a young, poor Irish immigrant and domestic servant in Upper Canada who—along with stable hand James McDermott (Kerr Logan)—finds herself accused and convicted of the infamous 1843 murders of her employer, wealthy farmer Thomas Kinnear (Paul Gross), and his housekeeper, Nancy Montgomery (Anna Paquin).
Inspired by true events, Alias Grace is written and produced by Sarah Polley (Take This Waltz, Away from Her) and directed by Mary Harron (American Psycho, I Shot Andy Warhol).
