The mini-series Sanditon—based on the unfinished novel Jane Austen was working on shortly before her death in 1817—is being brought to life by award-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies, who has already adapted Pride and Prejudice (1995), Sense and Sensibility (2008), Northanger Abbey (2007) and Emma (1996) as well as Les Misérables (2019) and War and Peace (2016). The eight-part production of Sanditon for ITV and MASTERPIECE will air in 2020.

The series stars Rose Williams as Charlotte Heywood, Theo James as Sidney Parker, Kris Marshall as Thomas Parker, Anne Reid as Lady Denham and Crystal Clarke as Miss Lambe.
