Elizabeth Macneal’s The Doll Factory set to screen down under on SBS and TVNZ

Period drama The Doll Factory

Premium period drama The Doll Factory, produced by UK production house Buccaneer for Paramount+ UK, will premiere globally in December on Australia’s SBS and later screen in New Zealand on TVNZ.

Adapted from Elizabeth Macneal’s popular debut novel, the six-part series stars Esme Creed-Miles (Hannah) as Iris, a doll painter who makes huge sacrifices in the quest to become an artist. The cast includes Mirren Mack (The Witcher: Blood Origin), Éanna Hardwicke and George Webster.

The series was a featured project for Cineflix Rights at Mipcom and the distributor will be representing the series globally.

SBS channel manager Natalie Edgar said the public broadcaster was proud to champion a variety of stories from around the globe.

“The Doll Factory sits perfectly alongside a host of acclaimed thrillers, noir and period cinema available for free to Australian audiences. We can’t wait to travel back in time to Elizabeth Macneal’s 1850s London to follow this enthralling tale,” said Edgar.

The series will screen weekly on SBS’s linear channel from December 7 and will also be available as a complete series via the SBS On Demand platform.

Tony Wood and Richard Tulk-Hart are executive producers on the series for Buccaneer in addition to Charley Miles, who is also the series screenwriter.
