Netflix‘s new miniseries Alias Grace is going to be a must-see for true-crime fans.

Adapted from a Margaret Atwood novel, Alias Grace tells the (true) story of a young maid named Grace Marks (played by Sarah Gadon) who was convicted of murdering her employers in 1843. She maintains her innocence and claims to have amnesia, but as a doctor digs deeper into her memory, that claim gets a bit muddled.

The series, directed by Mary Harron and written by Sarah Polley, follows up Hulu’s critically acclaimed adaptation of another Atwood novel, The Handmaid’s Tale.

Alias Grace debuts Nov. 3.
