Zachary Levi Joins Alias Grace, Netflix and CBC's 6-Hour Miniseries

Fresh off his Tony-nominated stint in Broadway’s She Loves Me, Zachary Levi is set to co-star in Netflix’s six-hour miniseries Alias Grace, sources confirm to TVLine exclusively.

Based on Margaret Atwood’s novel of the same name, Alias Grace centers around the true story and controversial conviction of Grace Marks (played by 11.22.63 breakout Sarah Gadon), an Irish immigrant who becomes a Canadian domestic servant and is later sentenced to prison for the murders of her employer and his housekeeper in 1843.

Details on Levi’s role remain under wraps. Netflix, which is co-producing with Canadian broadcaster CBC, declined to comment.

Levi’s post-Chuck TV work has included a starring role in Heroes Reborn and a recurring stint in Telenovela (both for NBC).

    Time for me to visit my library, though it sounds kind of dark and not my typical read (I liked Oryx and Crake though). But I’ll watch anything with Zach Levi.

  4. Kristina says:

    Doesn’t sound like something I’d usually watch, but anything for Zachary Levi!

  5. Jeff says:

    By the TV show title I thought it was going to be a JJ Abrams reboot on Alias, I was super excited.

  6. Deb says:

    I’m just glad he’ll be on my telly again. I was fortunate to see him in She Loves Me and meet him afterwards, a really lovely guy.

  7. D says:

    I really like him, I wish he would get more/better roles, I still miss Chuck!

    Will definitely be watching, as my favorite actor Zachary Levi is in it. Why won’t they disclose his character?
