FIRST THE DOLL FACTORY
COSTUME TV DRAMA IMAGES
Paramount Plus UK has actually revealed these images earlier this week, but I missed them for some reason, so I am showing them to you today - first pictures from their period set mini series THE DOLL FACTORY which will stream on Paramount Plus sometime later this year. The six episode small screen adaptation of the best selling novel by Elizabeth Macneal will also air on Australian SBS and TV New Zealand.
STORY IS SET IN LONDON, 1851
Iris (Esme Creed Miles) paints dolls for a living, alongside her twin sister, Rose (Mirren Mack), but dreams of becoming an artist. By night, she secretly paints herself naked, honing her craft. Silas (Eanna Hardwicke whom we watched earlier this summer in The Six Commandment series) is a taxidermist who owns a shop filled with his creations. He hopes to one day find an item so unique he will be catapulted to fame. Louis (George Webster) is a painter and member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, searching for his next muse. In a city humming with anticipation for the Great Exhibition, their three worlds collide, and Iris is offered an opportunity to escape and start a new life. To do so, she must abandon her sister, sacrifice her reputation, and launch herself into the unknown. As Iris’ world expands, she finds herself challenging patriarchal beliefs, exploring her sexuality, and starting to experience the things she has always dreamed of. But alongside her newfound independence, a story of dark obsession begins to unfold. Pippa Haywood, Sharlene Whyte, Reece Kenwyne-Mpudzi, Freddy Carter,
