DESCRIPTION:
(from PBS's press release, May 2017) PBS and MASTERPIECE have announced they will team with Colin Callender's Playground and the BBC for a television adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's coming-of-age classic, Little Women. The three-part drama will be scripted by Heidi Thomas, well-known to PBS audiences for her acclaimed adaptations of Call the Midwife and Cranford. Vanessa Caswill (Thirteen, My Mad Fat Diary) will direct all three hours. Playground's Golden Globe(R)-winning adaptation of Wolf Hall aired on MASTERPIECE in 2015. Loved by generations of women worldwide, Little Women is a truly universal coming of age story, as relevant and engaging today as it was on its original publication in 1868. Set against the backdrop of the Civil War, the story follows sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March on their journey from childhood to adulthood. With the help of their mother, Marmee, and while their father is away at war, the girls navigate what it means to be a young woman: from sibling rivalry and first love, to loss and marriage. Set in Concord, Massachusetts, Alcott's semi-autobiographical story became an instant bestseller when it was published and remains one of the most widely read novels of all time. A recent Harris poll listing it as one of America's ten favorite books confirms its enduring place in the cultural landscape.
