Domino Day to Bow on Sundance Now in the U.S.


AMC Networks’ Sundance Now has picked up the supernatural witch drama Domino Day to premiere this summer in the U.S.

The six-parter, starring Siena Kelly (Adult Material, Hit & Run), centers on a young witch with extraordinary powers who is desperately searching for a community to help her understand who she is. Unbeknownst to her, she doesn’t have to look very far—a coven is already tracking her every move, convinced they have to stop her before her powers destroy everyone.

In addition to Kelly, the cast includes Babirye Bukilwa, Poppy Lee Friar, Alisha Bailey, Molly Harris, Sam Howard Sneyd, Percelle Ascott, Lucy Cohu, Christopher Jeffers and Jonah Rzeskiewicz.

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, The Rising) and Haleema Mirza (Secret Invasion). It is directed by Eva Sigurdardottir (Good Night, Rainbow Party) and Nadira Amrani (Extraordinary, On The Edge).

The series is a Sundance Now collaboration with the BBC and Fremantle’s Dancing Ledge Productions. It will bow on Sundance Now and AMC+ in the U.S. this summer.

Domino Day was destined for Sundance Now,” said Shannon Cooper, VP of programming at Sundance Now. “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. Siena Kelly delivers a riveting performance alongside a compelling and stellar script. Thanks to our continued partners, Fremantle, BBC Three and Dancing Ledge Productions, for their collaboration across this exciting series, which we are elated to bring to our U.S. viewers.”

Shirley Bowers, senior VP of U.S. Distribution at Fremantle, added, “Sundance Now is the perfect platform for a premium scripted series like Domino Day. It’s such a big, bold modern series that sees witches caught up in an all-too-human drama that’s enthralling from the opening minute. We’re sure it will be another huge hit in the U.S. for one of our hottest English-language dramas of the year.”
