The BBC has released the first trailer for the upcoming modern-day witchcraft drama Domino Day, created and written by the BAFTA-nominated Lauren Sequeira and developed and produced by Fremantle’s Dancing Ledge Productions (The Responder, The Salisbury Poisonings), for BBC Three and BBC iPlayer.

The new series set and filmed in Manchester 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 is joined across the series by Babirye Bukilwa (We Hunt Together, Neighbors), Poppy Lee Friar (In My Skin, Life And Death In The Warehouse), Alisha Bailey (Call the Midwife, Strike) and Molly Harris (Industry, Monsoon) as the Coven. Sam Howard-Sneyd (Clarity and Chaos, The Children), Percelle Ascott (The Innocents, I Came By), Lucy Cohu (COBRA, Dangerous Liaisons), Christopher Jeffers (Rocketman, Coronation Street), Jonah Rzeskiewicz (Death on the Nile, The Dig) and Maimuna Memon (Sherwood, Lazarus) also star.

Domino Day (6×45’) is created and written by Lauren Sequeira, with individual episodes written by Charlene James and Haleema Mirza, and is directed by Eva Sigurdardottir and Nadira Amrani, with Nick Pitt as series producer and Megan Ott as producer. Executive producers are Lauren Sequeira with Laurence Bowen, Chris Carey, Eva Sigurdardottir and Elinor Day for Dancing Ledge Productions, a Fremantle company, and Lucy Richer and Ayela Butt for the BBC.

Domino Day is available in full on BBC iPlayer from 6am on Wednesday 31 January, with episodes airing weekly on BBC Three from 9pm that night. Fremantle is handling global distribution for the series.
