The CW is creating a Jane Austen anthology series, inspired by her long list of life-changing classics, entitled Modern Austen.
“…but for my own part, if a book is well written, I always find it too short.”
The above quote by the renowned eighteenth century author, Jane Austen, echoes the refrain in every book lover’s soul. We can never get enough of a good book, and in the case of Jane Austen, for the vast body of her classics among which proudly stands Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey and many more, todays readers (and viewers) cannot seem to get enough of this nineteenth century author’s work. Countless film adaptations have graced the big screen since Austen’s fountain pen was put to paper many centuries ago, and they are again being reimagined, this time in their entirety for the small screen, and with a modern spin.
By adapting these period books into a one-hour-long modern drama series, The CW is sure to be creating another binge-worthy platform for adoring Austen fans to cling to. Crack open your classic volumes and get prepared to watch their contents light up the small screen in an entirely new way!
