DESCRIPTION:
(from Netflix's press release, August 2016) Netflix and CBC are joining forces with Showrunner Moira Walley-Beckett and Miranda de Pencier's Northwood Entertainment for the highly anticipated dramatic television series ANNE, based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's timeless classic novel Anne of Green Gables. CBC greenlit the eight-episode, one-hour series earlier this year. The show will stream globally on Netflix and be broadcast in Canada on CBC in 2017. Award-winning director Niki Caro (Whale Rider, McFarland USA, Zookeeper's Wife) has signed on to direct the two-hour premiere episode. Caro teams up with three-time Emmy(R) Award and Golden Globe winner Moira Walley-Beckett (Breaking Bad, Flesh & Bone), who is writing the entire first season of the series produced by Miranda de Pencier (Beginners, Thanks For Sharing) under her Northwood Entertainment banner. This all-female powerhouse trio undoubtedly makes ANNE one of this year's most anticipated television series. Production is scheduled to begin this September in Ontario, Canada. ANNE is a coming-of-age story about an outsider who, against all odds and numerous challenges, fights for acceptance for her place in the world and for love. The series centers on a young orphaned girl in 1890, who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an elderly spinster and her aging brother. Over time, 13-year-old Anne will transform their lives and eventually the small town in which they live with her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination.
