The first trailer has debuted for ITV‘s upcoming Jane Austen adaptation Sanditon.

The 8-part series for ITV and Masterpiece, has been adapted by Emmy and BAFTA-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies (War & Peace, Les Misérables, Pride and Prejudice). Get your first-look at the eagerly anticipated series below:

Sanditon stars Rose Williams (Curfew, Changeland), Theo James (The Divergent Series, Downton Abbey), Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax, Hold the Sunset), Leo Suter (Beecham House) and Kris Marshall (Death in Paradise, Love Actually).

Written only months before Austen’s death in 1817, Sanditon tells the story of the joyously impulsive, spirited and unconventional Charlotte Heywood (Rose Williams) and her spiky relationship with the humorous, charming (and slightly wild!) Sidney Parker (Theo James).

When a chance accident transports her from her rural hometown of Willingden to the would-be coastal resort of the eponymous title, it exposes Charlotte to the intrigues and dalliances of a seaside town on the make, and the characters whose fortunes depend on its commercial success.

The twists and turns of the plot, which takes viewers from the West Indies to the rotting alleys of London, exposes the hidden agendas of each character and sees Charlotte discover herself and ultimately find love.

Sanditon is a Red Planet Pictures production commissioned for ITV by Polly Hill and Masterpiece by Rebecca Eaton. Created by Jane Austen, it is written and executive produced by Andrew Davies with Belinda Campbell as Executive Producer for Red Planet Pictures and Rebecca Eaton as Executive Producer for Masterpiece.
