The late mistress of Manderley, Rebecca, casts her irresistible spell from beyond the grave in this adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s haunting novel. Emmy-winner Diana Rigg ("Game of Thrones") portrays Mrs. Danvers, the sinister head housekeeper devoted to Rebecca. Charles Dance ("Game of Thrones" and "The Jewel in the Crown") and Emilia Fox ("The Pianist" and "Pride & Prejudice") star as Maxim and Mrs. de Winter. Rebecca airs on WXXI-TV on Sunday, August 13 at 8:00 p.m. with part 2 to begin just after 9:30 p.m.

When Maxim de Winter  proposes to a young woman, no one is more surprised than the circle of society friends who learn the intriguing news, especially as his new wife is the opposite of Maxim’s first wife, the beautiful Rebecca, who mysteriously died in a tragic drowning accident. After Maxim takes his new wife back to his home in Cornwall, the ancient and magnificent Manderley, it soon becomes evident that the shadow of Rebecca is all-pervasive, nurtured all the more by the sinister and gothic housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers. The new Mrs. de Winter begins to uncover the darkness of the past that taints the present and threatens to haunt her future.
