About the Show

Premiere date: November 24, 2016

Every dark cloud has a silver lining — and young Pollyanna knows how to find it. Georgina Terry makes a stirring debut as Pollyanna in this heartwarming tale of a little girl whose effortless charm captures the hearts of family, friends and strangers alike.

After the death of her father, Pollyanna moves in with her downcast, embittered aunt (Amanda Burton, Silent Witness) to the beautiful English village she now calls home. Soon Pollyanna charms everyone in Beldingsville, sharing a game her father taught her — the “Glad Game” — with the townsfolk. In doing so, she befriends Mr. Pendleton (Kenneth Cranham, Maleficent), Mrs. Snow (Pam Ferris, Call the Midwife) and Nancy (Kate Ashfield, The Diary of Anne Frank).

A Closer Look at "Pollyanna"

More About "Pollyanna"

Her sunny nature, good humor and determination to look on the bright side of life prove to have an astonishing effect on those around her — except her cold-hearted aunt who refuses to see the brighter side of life.

Aunt Polly, despite her vast wealth, impressive estate and numerous servants, treats young Pollyanna more like a stranger than a relative. Yet when tragedy strikes, Pollyanna’s sunny outlook persuades her aunt to confront past ghosts and embrace the promise of happiness. Based on the classic novel by Eleanor H. Porter, Pollyanna is a treat sure to be treasured by the entire family.

"Pollyanna" was produced by Carlton Television.
