The first official photos of Sanditon – the upcoming production of Jane Austen’s 11-chapter long unfinished novel of the same name, have been released. We were looking forward to it before, but now we’re more excited than ever to see the finished result!
I’m very excited that we are bringing the world of Sanditon to the TV audience with such a brilliant ensemble cast, headed by star of the future Rose Williams as our heroine, independent and forthright Charlotte Heywood, together with Theo James as Sidney Parker, our Regency entrepreneur with an aura of danger. It’s been such fun to develop Jane Austen’s fragment into a series – now I’m eager to see our exceptional cast bring “Sanditon” to life.
Andrew Davies, Creator and Screenwriter for Sanditon
The series will be shown on the UK TV channel ITV in this coming Autumn. The series will consist of eight 60-minute long episodes. The series will also be shown on PBS Masterpiece in the 2020 season.
