THEO JAMES & ROSE WILLIAMS TO LEAD ITV & PBS PERIOD SET TV SERIES ADAPTATION OF JANE AUSTEN'S SANDITON!

'SANDITON' PERIOD SET SAGA
THEO JAMES AND ROSE WILLIAMS TO TOPLINE THE CAST
Theo James will take the male lead in the series
Well, we certainly haven't seen him so far in British costume drama! Theo James is set to lead ITV's and PBS new period set saga SANDITON together with Rose Williams who played Princess Claude in Reign (very poorly if I may say). The small screen adaptation of Jane Austen's novel which was never finished, will also star Anne Reid and Kris Marshall and it was written by War and Peace and Les Miserables' scribe Andrew Davies.

SANDITON tells the story of the impulsive, spirited and unconventional Charlotte Heywood (Rose Williams) and her spiky relationship with the charming Sidney Parker (Theo James). When a chance accident transports her from her rural hometown of Willingden to a would-be coastal resort, it exposes Charlotte to the intrigues and dalliances of a seaside town on the make. The drama takes viewers from

the West Indies to the rotting alleys of London and exposes the hidden agendas of each character and sees Charlotte discover herself and ultimately find love.

Anne Reid will play Lady Denham. Two husbands dead and gone, Lady Denham received money from the first and a title from the second and expects to be treated with a great deal of deference. Notoriously tight-fisted, she seems to delight in the power that she wields over the town, particularly those waiting to cash in from her death. Playing the head of the Parker family, Kris Marshall stars in the eight part series as Tom Parker, an enthusiastic and happily married man with a vision of putting Sanditon on the map.

  1. The plot revolves around a place (Sanditon, a coastal town to become a resort) and a young woman (Charlotte) who "ultimately finds love". That is, the drama has a happy ending.
    The two actors to lead the saga are young, good looking, and talented, so it's gong to be an enjoyable TV series.

  2. I think I got it wrong. I married for love, but I should have gotten money and title first lol.
