Costume Drama Spotlight
Based on a classic French novel The Ladies Paradise by Emile Zola, this new eight-part BBC drama takes place in a splendidly posh department store in England in the late 1800's.
It will focus on the lives and relationships of all the staff, giving us nosy 21st Century'ers a
hopefully insightful and accurate although probably highly romanticized glimpse into these
working class ladies and gents.
It follows, in particular, a young country girl's arrival and subsequent adventures working at the country's first department store and her interactions with staff, customers and the somewhat mysterious, handsome owner.
BBC promises "love affairs, class issues and plenty of gorgeous clothes."
To which I say, HUZZAH!
This is currently airing in the UK this month and in the US hopefully
beginning of the new year.
Let me know your thoughts on this one and if it's a keeper!
