Next in line is a fresh rendition of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous Sherlock Holmes story, The Hound of the Baskervilles, on 26 December. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson take on the case of Sir Henry Baskerville, hoping to protect him from the terrifying fate that has befallen his family for generations.
In January, viewers can join Becky Sharp in the six one-hour episode Vanity Fair as she schemes to climb the social ladder and attains success by exploiting her guile, good looks and the gullibility of doting males.
Zee Studio will also showcase an adaptation of Charlotte Bronte’s classic Jane Eyre in four episodes. The adaptation mines Bronte’s novel for every ounce of passion, drama, colour, madness and horror available, bringing to life Jane’s inner world with beauty, humor and at times great sadness.
It will also air an adaptation of Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary, the tale of Emma Bovary, her thirst for life and her many lovers who let her down.
