On November 3, the new Netflix series Alias Grace will debut online.

The series follows Grace Marks (Sarah Gadon from 11.22.63), 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 from True Blood), 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 supposed 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.

The series also stars Paul Gross (Due South), Zachary Levi (Chuck), Rebecca Liddiard (Houdini and Doyle) and Edward Holcroft (Kingsman movies).

Here is a trailer for Alias Grace:
