Acorn TV announced today the US and Canadian premiere date for the Keeley Hawes drama Finding Alice.
Co-created by and starring BAFTA nominee Keeley Hawes (Bodyguard, Line of Duty, The Durrells in Corfu) as the titular character, Finding Alice is a contemporary drama that focuses on Alice’s honest, raw, and darkly-comic journey of grief, love, and life after the death of her partner, Harry.
It premieres in the US and Canada in its entirety on Monday, September 13, exclusively on Acorn TV.
For Alice, Harry (Jason Merrells, Agatha Raisin) and their daughter, Charlotte (Isabella Pappas, Home), moving into their new home should have been a dream come true. But it quickly turns into a nightmare when Alice finds Harry dead at the bottom of the stairs.
Alice’s beloved partner is no more, and now she can’t find the fridge. Harry had 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.
Family should be a source of comfort, but Harry’s parents, Minnie (Gemma Jones, Marvellous) and Gerry (Kenneth Cranham, The Good Karma Hospital), 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 had kept hidden from her.
The six-episode drama costars Sharon Rooney (My Mad Fat Diary) as Harry’s sister, Nicola, and Rhashan Stone (Keeping Faith) as mortuary worker Nathan Johnston.
Produced by RED Production Company (a STUDIOCANAL company) in association with Bright Pictures TV, Buddy Club Productions, and Genial Productions, Finding Alice was created by Keeley Hawes, series director Roger Goldby (Call the Midwife), and Simon Nye (The Durrells in Corfu), and written by Goldby and Nye. It has been renewed for a second season.
