  • Aspern Papers -Development Unknown
  • Les Miserables –

    A new six-part adaptation of Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables, a 19th century classic and widely regarded as one of the greatest books ever written, was announced today. The Les Misérables mini-series is a BBC Studios and Lookout Point co-production for BBC One in association with Weinstein Television.

    Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content said: “Andrew Davies’ extraordinary skill for adaptation will bring the world famous Les Misérables into powerful focus for a modern audience with a multi-layered re-telling of Victor Hugo’s masterpiece. BBC One viewers can expect the same quality and scale from the team behind ‘War & Peace’ in this epic tale of redemption and the healing power of love.”

    Andrew Davies will go back to the novel and delve deep into the many layers of Hugo’s story, revelling in Jean Valjean and Javert’s cat-and-mouse relationship, against the epic backdrop of France at a time of civil unrest. With a striking intensity and relevance to us today, the novel is testimony to the struggles of France’s underclass and how far they must go to survive.

    Over six hours, the series will bring to life a vast and unforgettable cast of characters and tell the story of Jean Valjean, a former convict unable to escape the shadow of his past life, and his relentless pursuit by the chilling police officer Javert.

    Andrew Davies said: “’Les Misérables’ is a huge iconic title. Most of us are familiar with the musical version which only offers a fragmentary outline of its story. I am thrilled to have the opportunity of doing real justice to Victor Hugo at last by adapting his masterpiece in a six hour version for the BBC, with the same team who made War & Peace.”
