Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell — BBC Launch Trailer

There are quite a few interesting-looking movies coming up in the next few months, so I’ll be featuring teasers for the rest of the week.  I’m going to start, though, w/a TV series.

With Game of Thrones, Wolf Hall, and Mad Men nearing their final 2015 episodes, and with Inside No. 9 already finished for the year, I’m looking for something new and unusual on the TV horizon.  I’ve got high hopes for BBC One’s seven-episode adaptation of Susanna Clarke’s best-selling 2004 novel, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell.

The story is set in an alternative early 19th Century Britain, where magic is real, but out of fashion.  Mr Norrell plans to revive it.

The series is expected to debut this month on BBC One and BBC America, but no dates have been announced. will debut on 17 May 2015, on BBC One.
