BBC One has released the trailer for their upcoming Les Misérables adaptation, which is a key part of the channel’s Christmas schedule.
Les Misérables, a 19th century classic widely regarded as one of the greatest books ever written, tells the story of Jean Valjean, a former convict unable to escape the shadow of his past life, and his relentless pursuit by the chilling police officer Javert.
The story is a testament to the struggles of France’s underclass and how far they must go to survive. The six episode series, which was adapted for the small-screen by Andrew Davies, is produced by BBC Studios and Lookout Point and stars Dominic West, David Oyelowo, Lily Collins, Adeel Akhtar, Olivia Colman, Madame Thénardier, Ellie Bamber, Josh O’Connor and Erin Kellyman.
