BBC supernatural drama Domino Day dawns at Sundance Now after Fremantle deal

Siena Kelly plays a modern day witch in Domino Day

LA SCREENINGS: AMC Networks-owned streamer Sundance Now has picked up BBC Three’s supernatural drama Domino Day (6×60’) for a summer stateside debut through a deal with distributor Fremantle.

Following its UK launch on BBC Three in January this year, the show will premiere in the US this summer on Sundance Now and AMC+. The series is produced by Fremantle-owned UK prodco Dancing Ledge Productions.

Domino Day is created and written by Lauren Sequeira (Gangs of London, Kiss Me First), with individual episodes written by Charlene James (A Discovery of Witches)and Haleema Mirza (Secret Invasion). The series is directed by Eva Sigurdardottir (Good Night, Rainbow Party) and Nadira Amrani (Extraordinary, On The Edge), with Nick Pitt as producer.

Executive producers are Lauren Sequeira with Laurence Bowen, Chris Carey and Elinor Day for Dancing Ledge Productions and Lucy Richer and Ayela Butt for the BBC. The US deal was brokered by Fremantle’s Shirley Bowers, senior VP of US distribution and Shannon Cooper, VP of programming at Sundance Now.

Set and filmed in Manchester, the supernatural six-parter stars Bafta-nominated Siena Kelly (Adult Material, Hit & Run) as a young witch who uses dating apps to hunt for victims whose life energy she feeds on . Other cast members include Babirye Bukilwa, Poppy Lee Friar, Alisha Bailey, Molly Harris, Sam Howard Sneyd and Percelle Ascott.

“With our audience’s deep love of wildly popular series such as A Discovery of Witches and our recent successful coven drama Sanctuary: A Witch’s Tale, Domino Day is in perfect company,” said Cooper. “Siena Kelly delivers a riveting performance alongside a compelling and stellar script.”
