About Les Misérables

A blockbuster novel for over 150 years comes vividly to life in this multi-layered retelling of Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. This enthralling television event (not a musical) airs in six episodes as part of MASTERPIECE, beginning Sunday, April 14 at 9pm on WITF TV.

Les Misérables opens after the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, which saw Napoleon's final defeat by the English and their allies, a quarter of a century after the French Revolution. With Napoleon's downfall, the French monarchy is restored - and the thwarted ideals of the republic go underground. For most of that quarter century, Valjean has been serving a sentence of hard labor for stealing a loaf of bread. On his release the same year as Waterloo, he immediately resorts to petty crime, risking re-arrest and a life sentence--a fate deemed a virtual certainty by his former jailer Javert.

The drama premieres Sunday, April 14. Watch Les Misérables on MASTERPIECE, Sundays at 9pm on WITF TV.

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

Funding for An Afternoon with Les Miserables is provided by Wendell Funk Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center. Funding for MASTERPIECE on WITF TV is provided by Pleasant View Communities.

All proceeds benefit WITF Public Media.
