Set in the 1850s, Chapelwaite follows Captain Charles Boone (Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody), who relocates his family of three children to his ancestral home in the small, seemingly sleepy town of Preacher’s Corners, Maine after his wife dies at sea. However, Charles will soon have to confront the secrets of his family’s sordid history, and fight to end the darkness that has plagued the Boones for generations.
The series, based on the short story Jerusalem’s Lot by Stephen King, also stars Emily Hampshire (Schitt’s Creek). Hampshire plays Rebecca Morgan, an ambitious young woman who left Preacher’s Corners to attend Mount Holyoke College, and has returned home with an advance to write a story for the new and prestigious Atlantic Magazine. Her writer’s block lifts when Boone arrives in town with his children, and despite her mother’s protests, Rebecca applies to be governess of the infamous Chapelwaite manor and the Boone family in order to write about them. In doing so, Rebecca will not only craft the next great gothic novel, she’ll unravel a mystery that has plagued her own family for years.
Chapelwaite is executive produced by Donald De Line (Ready Player One, Wayward Pines). Jason Filardi and Peter Filardi serve as executive producers and showrunners. This is the first series from EPIX Productions.
