PBS has unveiled the trailer for Sanditon, its new adaptation of Jane Austen’s latest novel of the same name.
The story—brought to life by Emmy Award-winning Andrew Davies—follows a joyous and impulsive woman, Charlotte Heywood (Rose Williams), and her relationship with the charming Sidney Parker (Theo James). As she adapts to living in the fishing village named Sanditon, she’ll embark on a journey of learning to love herself and ultimately finding love.
Austen only wrote 11 chapters of the novel before her death in 1817; however, the series, which is the first major television adaption of the story, stretches to eight hour-long episodes.
Crystal Clarke (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Kris Marshall (Love, Actually, Death at a Funeral) and Anne Reid (The Snowman) also star in the series, which comes to Masterpiece on PBS in 2020.
