Les Misérables

Victor Hugo’s masterpiece comes to television in a six-part adaptation by multi award-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies. Dominic West stars as fugitive Jean Valjean, with David Oyelowo as his pursuer Inspector Javert and Lily Collins as the luckless single mother Fantine. Ellie Bamber and Josh O'Connor costar as the young lovers Cosette and Marius. Love, death, and the struggle for social justice in early 19th-century France feature in this beautifully faithful retelling of one of the world’s most beloved stories.

Valjean saves an innocent man. He tracks down Cosette, but they must escape Javert.

Where there is love, there is hope. An epic new adaptation coming to MASTERPIECE on PBS.
