Les Miserables TV series

Postby princess garnet » Thu January 11th, 2018, 12:56 am

A forthcoming addition to PBS's "Masterpiece" lineup for US audiences! Victor Hugo's famed novel Les Miserables will be dramatized in a new 6 part series. More here:

Filming will start next month.

In addition to the musical and anniversary concerts, Les Miserables has been adapted numerous times for TV and movies in English and French. I remember watching the 1998 movie version starring Liam Neeson and Geoffrey Rush on TV years ago.

I saw that version too, it was released here as a film, wasn't bad but very condensed, inevitably.
