It's time for our annual post on where and when you can find all your favorite versions on TV this year! Below is the list of what I've found so far. Keep checking back, because I'll update as I find more. And if I've left out any showings that you know of, please comment and I'll add them. All times are Eastern.
As you know, I usually keep an open mind about adaptations. But I confess I feel a bit dubious about this:
"The drama, which has received a script commitment [at NBC], is described as a modern take on Dickens' second novel that was originally published as a serial in the 1830s. Twist's logline is as follows: A sexy contemporary take on Oliver Twist with a struggling 20-something female (Twist) who finally finds a true sense of family in a strange group of talented outcasts who use their unique skills to take down wealthy criminals."
This time, it's Harvey Weinstein who's teaming up with the BBC to make a television adaptation of the novel (as a follow-up to their recent War and Peace adaptation). After all the rumors of various adaptations in the past few years, could this finally happen for real? I have to say, having a name as big as Weinstein's involved sounds promising!
