PSA: Pride and Prejudice 2: Pride Harder Coming to TV?

6 Jul

BBE One has announced a three part serial television adaptation of the suspense novel written by P.D. James titled, Death Comes to Pemberley.

It is set to take place six years after the events of Pride and Prejudice. During Elizabeth’s and Darcy’s annual ball Lydia “the bad one” Wickham shows up and there is a murder mystery surrounding the death of her husband.

According to the reports I’ve seen it is set to be released in later 2013 early 2014.

Casting has already been completed for the roles of Mr. Darcy (Matthew Rhys, who also starred in the FX Show The Americans), Elizabeth Bennett (Anna Maxwell Martin, XXX), and Lydia Wickham (Jenna-Louise Coleman, from Dr. Who).
