Little Women – Masterpiece
Mondays at 8 p.m., starting December 17
Based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott and loved by generations of women worldwide, the three-part Little Women is a universal coming-of-age story. 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. This adaptation is from the award-winning creator of Call the Midwife, Heidi Thomas, who also wrote Cranford and the latter-day Upstairs Downstairs for Masterpiece.
Angela Lansbury and Michael Gambon star with BAFTA Award-winner Emily Watson as beloved Marmee; Maya Hawke, Willa Fitzgerald, Annes Elwy and Kathryn Newton play the iconic March sisters.
