About the Show:
Nineteenth century English writer Jane Austen was a trailblazer and a social changer. In early 1817, she fell ill with a mysterious disease when she started work on a novel set in a seaside town called Sanditon. She never finished it. MASTERPIECE introduced its Sanditon mini-series in 2020, picking up Austen’s setting, characters, and plot.
While taking us on an amazing adventure in the 19th century with Miss Heywood, the series also explores issues of race, sexual abuse, gender roles, money, and power.
