Anna Paquin Drama Bellevue Scores U.S. Slot


WGN America has picked up the U.S. rights to the original drama series Bellevue, starring Anna Paquin (True Blood, Roots).

The 8×1-hour drama is produced by Muse Entertainment and Back Alley Film Productions and was commissioned by Canada’s CBC. The series is set in the small town of Bellevue, which was traumatized 20 years ago by the murder of a young woman. Now the killer is back…or is he? Bellevue will premiere in early 2018 on WGN America.

Shawn Doyle (House of Cards, Fargo) and Allen Leech (Downton Abbey, The Imitation Game) co-star. Paquin also serves as an executive producer, alongside creators/showrunners Jane Maggs (The Offering) and producer/director Adrienne Mitchell (Bomb Girls, Durham County).
