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.
"If there has been a crime, people want a guilty person", she says.
Press PLAY on the video above to watch the super-intense trailer, then hit the comments: Will you stream Alias Grace when it premieres on November 3?
Alias Grace is written and produced by Sarah Polley (Looking for Alaska, Take this Waltz, Away from Her) and directed by Mary Harron (American Psycho, I Shot Andy Warhol). Coming off the success of Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", another Atwood adaptation, it's likely that Netflix has sky-high hopes for "Alias Grace".
Based on the novel by Margaret Atwood (which was itself based on a true story), Alias Grace tells the story of Grace Marks, an impoverished Irish immigrant living in Canada who stands accused of the murders of her employer and his housekeeper. Much like the novel at its foundation, the miniseries will focus on the efforts of the fictional Dr. Simon Jordan (Edward Holcroft) as he works with Grace, who claims amnesia, to recall her past and the events surrounding the murder. Chuck's Zachary Levi - who co-stars in the miniseries - pops up briefly in the trailer as well.
