Tonight, Greater Victoria residents will finally be able to watch the first episode of “Maid” as it premieres its first episode on Netflix.

The series, which was filmed entirely in the Greater Victoria area, is based on the memoir “Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive” by Stephanie Land.

The adaptation follows the story of a young mother fleeing an abusive relationship who finds a job cleaning houses to help provide for her child and build them a better future. 

Margaret Qualley leads the cast, with the producers of Shameless and Promising Young Woman backing the production. 

Filming began at Colwood’s Royal Beach in September 2020. 

Production then moved to various locations including Sidney, North Saanich, Esquimalt, Saanich, Colwood, Oak Bay, and Sooke  before wrapping in March 2021.

The series is the biggest TV production in Greater Victoria history and production of the series employed approximately two hundred crew members.
