Bbcs Les Miserables Mini Series Trailer

PBS’ Masterpiece has released the first trailer for the upcoming non-musical event series adaptation of Victor Hugo’s classic novel “Les Miserables”.

The six-episode adaptation stars Dominic West as Jean Valjean, David Oyelowo as Javert, Lily Collins as Fantine, Josh O’Connor as Marius, Ellie Bamber as Cosette, Erin Kellyman as Eponine and Adeel Akhtar and Olivia Colman as Monsieur and Madame Thenardier.

Hailing from “Pride & Prejudice” scribe Andrew Davies and director Tom Shankland, the story explores the many layers of Valjean and Javert’s cat-and-mouse relationship and set against the epic backdrop of France at a time of civil unrest.

Lookout Point and BBC Studios are co-producing the project which is set for premiere on Masterpiece in 2019.
