Emmy and BAFTA-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies adapts Jane Austen’s incomplete 11-chapter novel, written in 1817, for this sumptuous, eight-part series. Sanditon tells the story of the joyously impulsive, spirited and unconventional Charlotte Heywood and her spiky relationship with the charming and mercurial Sidney Parker. When an accident transports Charlotte from her rural hometown to the up-and-coming coastal resort of Sanditon, it exposes her to the intrigues and dalliances of a seaside town, and the characters whose fortunes depend on its commercial success. The series also includes Kate Ashfield, Jack Fox, Charlotte Spencer, Crystal Clarke, Lily Sacofsky, Leo Suter and Adrian Scarborough among the talented cast.
