"Death Comes to Pemberley" is being adapted as a three-part miniseries which will air on BBC One. It will reportedly be shown in December.
"Doctor Who" actress Jenna Coleman is set to star as Lydia Wickham, heroine Elizabeth Bennet's trying younger sister who opens the story by arriving at Elizabeth's home in hysterics, insisting that her husband Wickham is in trouble. Anna Maxwell Martin of the miniseries "The Bletchley Circle" will play Elizabeth, while "The Americans" actor Matthew Rhys will play Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy.
"Stoker" actor Matthew Goode will portray George Wickham and "Jack the Giant Slayer" actress Eleanor Tomlinson will play Darcy's sister Georgiana.
"Pemberley" was very well-received critically and stayed on bestseller lists such as the New York Times and IndieBound lists for months after its publication.
