1ST TRAILER & PHOTOS FOR PERIOD SET SERIES 'ALIAS GRACE' WITH SARAH GADON, ZACHARY LEVI, EDWARD HOLCROFT! 1ST PHOTOS OF DAN STEVENS AS DICKENS IN 'THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS'

'ALIAS GRACE' TRAILER FOR
SARAH GADON MINI SERIES
While some of you are enjoying the new television version of The Handmaid's Tale, another of Margaret Atwood's small screen adaptations ALIAS GRACE has just got the first trailer and first photos for the mini series that will launch September 25th at Netflix and CBC in Canada.
A 19TH CENTURY MYSTERY
The six part mini series 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 and his housekeeper in 1843. James was hanged while Grace was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1843. Grace claimed to have had no memory of the murder yet the facts were irrefutable. A decade after, Dr. Simon Jordan tried to help Grace recall her past. Grace was one of the most enigmatic and notorious women of her time for her supposed role in the sensational double murder, but 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. Zachary Levi is also in the cast alongside Reign's Michael Therriault and Edward Holcroft as the doctor! Atwood has a cameo in the series!



'MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS'
DAN STEVENS PICS AS DICKENS
There are also the first pictures from another period set project, this time a movie starring Dan Stevens as Charles Dickens! THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS also stars Christopher Plummer as “Scrooge” and Jonathan Pryce as Dickens’ father.
THE BIRTH OF CHRISTMAS CAROL  
October 1843. Charles Dickens was broke and distressed. Despite early success, his last three books had failed. Rejected by his publishers, he set out to write and self-publish a book he hoped would keep his family afloat. This is the story of the six fever-pitched weeks in which Dickens created A Christmas Carol, the masterpiece that changed the holiday into the merry family event we know today.
