Netflix has released the full-length trailer for "Alias Grace," the murder-mystery mini-series based on "The Handmaid's Tale" author Margaret Atwood's acclaimed historical fiction book, which was inspired by the real-life case of Irish immigrant housemaid Grace Marks who, in 1841 Canada, was sent to prison for killing her abusive employer and his mistress.

Canadian actress Sarah Gadon (from Hulu's adaptation of Stephen King's "11.22.63") stars as the infamous Grace Marks in the six-part period Canadian drama, which was written and executive produced by acclaimed actress/filmmaker Sarah Polley (Take This Waltz, Away from Her) and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Mary Harron (American Psycho, The Notorious Bettie Page).

The cast includes True Blood's Anna Paquin, Chuck's Zachary Levi, Kerr Logan, and Rebecca Liddiard with Kingsman's Edward Holcroft playing a sympathetic doctor who believes Grace suffers from a special form of amnesia, which prevents her from remembering the day of the murders.

"Alias Grace" is scheduled to premiere on Canadian television (CBC) on September 25th. It will then stream globally on Netflix beginning November 3rd.
