BBC announces new commission, DOMINO DAY, written and created by Lauren Sequeira

We’re thrilled that Lauren Sequeria’s new series DOMINO DAY (6×45) (BBC Three and BBC iPlayer) has been announced, and will be arriving soon to our screens.

A supernatural series set in Manchester, DOMINO DAY explores the inner turmoil of a young witch who tries to reconcile her dark powers with her quest to find love.

The series will follow, Domino, a powerful young witch, who is haunted by her need to feed on the energy of others.  A hunger that only grows, despite her attempt to start her life over in Manchester, where she is desperately seeking a community who can help her understand what is happening to her.  But  Domino doesn’t need to try so hard as a coven of witches are already tracking her every move,  convinced they have to stop her before her powers destroy everyone and everything around her. 

Writer, creator and Executive Producer, Lauren Sequeira says:  “I’m over the (full) moon to be doing this project with the BBC and Dancing Ledge Productions, who have really championed my career from the start. I wanted to write a supernatural series that wasn’t only thrilling and twisty, but also tapped into the very real dating scene and how it affects modern relationships. I can’t wait for the audience to meet Domino Day, and couldn’t imagine a better team than DLP — after being their writer-in-resident, many moons ago, it feels right that they’ll now be producing my first original series.”

“Lauren was our Writer in Residence at Dancing Ledge for a year so it’s wonderful to now be producing her first TV series. We think she’s a really exceptional talent and DOMINO DAY celebrates all the things that define her as a writer – beautifully complex and strong female characters, a love of genre and a desire to entertain. We can’t wait to get started.” Laurence Bowen, CEO Dancing Ledge Productions, said of the announcement .

DOMINO DAY is Executive Produced by Lucy Richer and Ayela Butt for the BBC, Laurence Bowen and Chris Carey for Dancing Ledge Productions and Lauren Sequeira.
