Just in time for Halloween, the BBC has released a gallery of first-look images of its forthcoming, modern-day witch drama Domino Day. The original new series has been created and written by the BAFTA-nominated Lauren Sequeira and developed and produced by Fremantle’s Dancing Ledge Productions (The Responder, The Salisbury Poisoning) for the BBC. Domino Day will arrive in early 2024 on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer.
Set and filmed in Manchester, 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?
Siena Kelly can be seen as Domino in the new pictures, alongside fellow cast members Babirye Bukilwa as Sammie, Poppy Lee Friar as Geri, Alisha Bailey as Kat, Molly Harris as Jules, Sam Howard Sneyd as Silas, Percelle Ascott as Leon. The series also stars Lucy Cohu, Christopher Jeffers and Jonah Rzeskiewicz.
Domino Day creator Lauren Sequeira says: “I cannot wait for the world to meet this amazing cast, led by the sensational Siena Kelly. Don’t expect broomsticks, pointy hats and wands — these are witches like you’ve never seen before; cool, provocative, and full of grit. They are all simply spellbinding onscreen, and Siena is the perfect Domino Day.”
Domino Day (6x45’) is created and written by Lauren Sequeira (Gangs of London, Kiss Me First), with individual episodes written by Charlene James (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), with Nick Pitt as producer. Executive producers are Lauren Sequeira with Laurence Bowen, Chris Carey and Elinor Day for Dancing Ledge Productions and Lucy Richer and Ayela Butt for the BBC.
Domino Day will air on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer in early 2024. Fremantle is handling global distribution for the series.
