BBC One’s Victor Hugo adaptation Les Misérables will premiere on Sunday December 30th at 9pm, it has been announced.
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.
