About Sanditon

Jane Austen’s last, fragmentary work is completed by Emmy® Award–winning screenwriter Andrew Davies, who has filled out the tantalizing plot that Austen began but died before she could finish. Rose Williams stars as Austen’s lively but levelheaded heroine. Theo James plays her smoldering romantic foil. Anne Reid is the haughty patroness of the seaside spa where the story is set. And Kris Marshall plays the entrepreneur trying mightily to make the spa a success. Other love interests, legacy hunters, hypochondriacs, and medical mountebanks populate this struggling resort aiming to be the next fashionable playground in early 19th-century England.

Jane Austen’s unfinished novel comes to life Sunday, January 12. Watch Sanditon, Sundays at 9pm on WITF.

Funding for MASTERPIECE is provided by Viking® and Raymond James, with additional support from public television viewers and contributors to The Masterpiece Trust, created to help ensure the series’ future.

All proceeds benefit WITF Public Media.
