Les Misérables is coming to Masterpiece! Earlier this week, Masterpiece and BBC One announced the ensemble cast for a new epic adaptation of Les Misérables.
Andrew Davies (House of Cards, Mr Selfridge) will write the series, exploring the many layers of Victor Hugo’s original novel. Dominic West (The Affair) will star as Jean Valjean and David Oyelowo (MI-5) as Javert. Other players include Lily Collins, Adeel Akhtar, Olivia Colman, Ellie Bamber, Josh O’Connor and Erin Kellyman.
The series is scheduled to begin production next month. No air date is set as yet but I’ll let you know as soon as I hear anything.
