Les Misérables - MASTERPIECE, PBS S: D. West, Owelowo, L. Collins (April 2019)

This is coming next year and looks really good. No singing in this one



MASTERPIECE on PBS and BBC One announce a new adaptation of Victor Hugo’s classic novel Les Misérables from multi award-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies. The drama is set to premiere Sunday, April 14, 2019 on MASTERPIECE on PBS.

The six-part drama adaptation stars Dominic West (The Affair, The Hour) as Jean Valjean, and David Oyelowo (Selma) as Javert in this landmark drama adaptation. They are joined in this epic event drama by Lily Collins (Rules Don’t Apply, Love, Rosie), in the role of Fantine.

With a striking intensity and relevance to us today, Victor Hugo’s novel is testimony to the struggles of France’s underclass and how far they must go to survive. The six-part television adaptation of the renowned book will vividly and faithfully bring to life the vibrant and engaging characters, the spectacular and authentic imagery and, above all, the incredible yet accessible story that was Hugo’s lifework.

The distinguished British cast also includes Adeel Akhtar (The Night Manager, Murdered By My Father) and Olivia Colman (Murder On The Orient Express, The Night Manager, Broadchurch) as Monsieur and Madame Thénardier, Ellie Bamber (Nocturnal Animals, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies) as Cosette, Josh O’Connor (The Durrells in Corfu) as Marius and Erin Kellyman (Raised By Wolves) as Éponine.
