New York, NY – August 10, 2021 – Co-created by and starring BAFTA-nominated actress Keeley Hawes (Bodyguard, Line of Duty), Finding Alice will make its exclusive US and Canada debut with all six episodes on Monday, September 13 on Acorn TV, AMC Networks’ acclaimed streamer devoted to British and international television. The contemporary drama with comedic elements, created by Hawes, series director Roger Goldby (The Durrells) and Simon Nye (The Durrells), and written by Goldby and Nye, focuses on Alice’s honest, raw, darkly-comic journey of grief, love and life after the death of her partner Harry.
For Alice (Hawes), Harry (Jason Merrells, Agatha Raisin) and their daughter, Charlotte (Isabella Pappas, Paranoid), moving into their new home should have been a dream come true. But it quickly turns into a nightmare when Alice discovers Harry dead at the bottom of the stairs. Harry designed their new smart house, so it’s weird and wonderful, and one more disorientation for Alice on top of her sense of loss and abandonment.
Alice’s beloved partner is no more, and now she can’t find the fridge. Family should be a source of comfort, but Harry’s parents, Minnie (Gemma Jones, Bridget Jones’ Diary) and Gerry (Kenneth Cranham, The White Princess), keep popping round uninvited. While Alice’s own parents, Roger (Nigel Havers, Coronation Street) and Sarah (Joanna Lumley, Absolutely Fabulous), only seem to add to her list of problems. With Harry gone and Alice struggling to cope, Charlotte is forced to bottle up her grief and be the responsible one. Especially when the police turn up asking questions about the night that Harry died. To make matters worse, more unexpected visitors start knocking on Alice’s door, and she begins to realize that Harry’s business debt wasn’t the only secret he kept hidden from her.
Also starring are Sharon Rooney (My Mad Fat Diary) as Harry’s sister Nicola and Rhashan Stone (Keeping Faith) as mortuary worker Nathan Johnston.
The series is produced by RED Production Company (a STUDIOCANAL company) in association with Bright Pictures TV, Buddy Club Productions and Genial Productions.
