AMC Networks’ popular streamer Sundance Now has been announced as the exclusive U.S. home for Fremantle´s drama "Domino Day". Following its successful U.K. launch on BBC Three earlier this year to wide critical acclaim, "Domino Day" will premiere in the U.S. this summer on Sundance Now and AMC+. The series is a Sundance Now collaboration with British broadcaster the BBC and Fremantle’s Dancing Ledge Productions.

Set and filmed in Manchester, UK, the supernatural six-parter stars the BAFTA nominated Siena Kelly ("Adult Material", "Hit & Run") as Domino Day, a young woman on all the dating apps. But Domino isn’t swiping to find her soulmate – she’s swiping to hunt.A young witch with extraordinary powers, Domino is desperately seeking a community who can help her understand who she is, but she doesn’t need to look far as a coven of witches is already tracking her every move, convinced they have to stop her before her powers destroy everyone and everything around her. When a dangerous figure from Domino’s past comes back to haunt her, will it be a fresh start for them all, or a final showdown?

Shannon Cooper, VP, Programming, Sundance Now, understands that the title found the perfect network: 'Domino Day' was destined for 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," noted.

Shirley Bowers, SVP of U.S. Distribution, Fremantle estimates that the content can have a full impact on the audiences: “Sundance Now is the perfect platform for a premium scripted series like Domino Day. It’s such a big, bold modern series which 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," highlighted.
