What’s This TV Show About?
A Canadian series streaming on the Netflix paid subscription platform, Alias Grace stars Sarah Gadon, Edward Holcroft, Anna Paquin, Paul Gross, Rebecca Liddiard, Kerr Logan, Zachary Levi, and David Cronenberg. A Sarah Polley adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s novel which was inspired by real-life events, the historical drama centers on a poor, young Irish immigrant from Ulster — Grace Marks. Grace works as a domestic servant in Upper Canada. After her employer, Thomas Kinnear (Gross) and his housekeeper Nancy Montgomery (Paquin), are brutally murdered, Grace and stablehand James McDermott (Logan) are accused of the crime. While both are convicted, where McDermott is hanged, Grace becomes a cause célèbre for warring political factions of the day.
A co-production of Canada’s CBC and Netflix, Alias Grace is billed as a mini-series, which should mean it will end after its six-episode first season. However, The Handmaid’s Tale, which was also based on a Margaret Atwood novel, was such a hit that Hulu decided to renew it for a second season, anyhow. Because of that, I’ve decided to run out for some poutine and bide my time on Alias Grace. Flying blind, I think Alias Grace will end after one season, as originally intended. Still, I’ll keep an eye on the trades and update this page with breaking developments. Unless Netflix decides to release statistics, however, I won’t have viewership numbers to go on.
