Les Miserables TV series

Post by 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.

This is going to be shown at the end of this month, looks good from the trailer.

Has had good reviews here, but much relief at the absence of songs.
