TV Mini-Series | TV-MA | | Drama, Horror, Mystery
After an au pair’s tragic death, Henry hires a young American nanny to care for his orphaned niece and nephew who reside at Bly Manor with the chef Owen, groundskeeper Jamie and housekeeper, Mrs. Grose.
Oliver Jackson-Cohen was originally going to play the gardener love interest of Dani, but Mike Flanagan thought the audience might find it a little strange because Oliver and Victoria played twins in The Haunting of Hill House (2018) . So he was cast as the dastardly but tragic Peter Quint instead.
Bly Manor has North American early 20th century push button light switches and sockets throughout the building despite being set somewhere in Essex, England. Buildings electrified in early 20th century England would have had toggle switches and round two pin sockets. By the 1980s, when the series is set, there would have been modern UK sockets and switches if the building had ever been rewired. Henry's office and Peter's flat have the correct UK switches.
