Based on the beloved British novels by Enid Blyton, the series is set in an all-girls boarding school in England after World War II. The 13-episode scripted series is both nostalgic and contemporary in its approach to the timeless story of impetuous student Darrell Rivers and her classmates. Full of midnight feasts, lacrosse games, jolly picnics and a mysterious ghost story, there is adventure and excitement around every corner. “Malory Towers” was acquired from WildBrain (“Inspector Gadget,” “Strawberry Shortcake”), which will co-produce with BYUtv for future seasons.
Set in the 1940s on the sun-drenched cliffs of the Cornish coast, “Malory Towers” follows 12-year-old Darrell Rivers, played by talented newcomer Ella Bright, as she leaves home for the first time to attend an all-girls’ boarding school. For a contemporary audience, the show is both aspirational and inspirational, telling the story of universal experiences including shifting cliques, FOMO, bullying, crushes, peer pressure, and self-doubt. The girls keep an eye on each other and, like a family, are forever connected by their shared experiences.
“Malory Towers” also stars Jennifer Wigmore (Anne with an E) as Headmistress Miss Grayling; Imali Perera (The Handmaid’s Tale) as Miss Potts; and Ashley McGuire as Matron. Rounding out the cast are Zoey Siewert, Twinkle Jaiswal, Danya Griver, and Natasha Raphael alongside newcomers Sienna Arif Knights, Beth Bradfield Saskia Kemkers, and Imogen Lamb.
