OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
MASTERPIECE has announced that it will air MaryLand, the three-part miniseries starring Suranne Jones (Gentleman Jack), Eve Best (House of the Dragon) and Stockard Channing (The West Wing). MaryLand will premiere on April 7, 2024 at 9/8c on MASTERPIECE on PBS, on air and online.
When it aired in the UK, television critics praised the series as "a moving portrait of sisterhood" (The Independent), "intriguing" (The Times), and "beautifully played" (The Scotland Herald).
MaryLand is a story about two sisters, about what binds them together and what has driven them apart. Becca (Jones) and Rosaline (Best) find themselves thrown together by the sudden death of their mother, Mary. They come to find out that she was living an entirely secret life on the Isle of Man, far from her home with her husband, Becca and Rosaline's father.
As the sisters travel through the early days of grief and discover their mother's secrets, they meet their mother's quirky friend Cathy (Channing) who seems to know more about their mother than they do. Becca and Rosaline find themselves asking fundamental questions about their identities and the relationships with the men in their lives. Mary's death offers them a chance to not only reframe their relationship but fundamentally reshape who they are. At its heart, MaryLand is a love story of two sisters.
MASTERPIECE Executive Producer Susanne Simpson says, "MaryLand is an emotional journey of two estranged sisters who are determined to find the truth about their mother. Suranne Jones and Eve Best deliver stunning performances in this wonderful show." MASTERPIECE is presented on PBS by GBH Boston.
MaryLand is a co-Production of Monumental Television, TeamAkers Productions, ShinAwiL, and MASTERPIECE in association with ITV Studios.
