Netflix has released their first teaser trailer for their upcoming six-hour miniseries adaption ALIAS GRACE, which can be seen down below!

Inspired by the historical true story of convicted murderer Grace Marks, the series is based on the award-winning novel by Margaret Atwood of the same name. The story follows Grace Marks (Sarah Gadon), a poor, young Irish immigrant and domestic servant in Upper Canada who, along with stable hand James McDermott (Kerr Logan) was convicted of the brutal murders of their employer, Thomas Kinnear, and his housekeeper, Nancy Montgomery (Anna Paquin), in 1843. James was hanged while Grace was sentenced to life imprisonment. Grace became one of the most enigmatic and notorious women of 1840s Canada for her supported role in the sensational double murder, and was eventually exonerated after 30 years in jail. Her conviction was controversial, and sparked much debate about whether Grace was actually involved in the murder, or merely an unwitting accessory.

Written and produced by Sarah Polley and directed by Mary Harron. The series is a co-production with Halfire Entertainment, CBC and Netflix. Polley, Harron and Noreen Halpern executive produce.

ALIAS GRACE will broadcast in Canada on CBC and stream everywhere else globally on Netflix on Friday, November 3.
