Angela Lansbury, Emily Watson, Michael Gambon Join ‘Little Women’ for BBC/PBS


The three-part adaptation for BBC One and Masterpiece begins shooting in Ireland later this month.

The upcoming Little Women adaptation for the BBC/PBS has found its women (and a couple of men).

Angela Lansbury, Emily Watson and Michael Gambon are set to star in the three-part drama, based on Louise May Alcott’s classic novel and due to start shooting in Ireland later this month. Watson will play Marmee Maya Hawke, with Willa Fitzgerald, Annes Elwy and Kathryn Newton playing the iconic March sisters alongside Jonah Hauer-King as Laurie Laurence.

The latest Little Woman adaptation comes from the award-winning creator of Call the Midwife, Heidi Thomas, with Vanessa Caswill directing.

The drama, part of a volley of new shows announced by the BBC earlier this year, has been commissioned by Piers Wenger and Charlotte Moore at the broadcaster and will be produced by Playground (Wolf Hall, Howards End) for BBC One. The series is a co-production with Masterpiece on PBS, with Susie Liggat producing.

Executive producers are Colin Callender and Sophie Gardiner for Playground, Heidi Thomas, Lucy Richer for the BBC and Rebecca Eaton for Masterpiece.
