BritBox partners PBS on Sanditon

Sanditon was originally coproduced by ITV

UK streaming service BritBox has boarded PBS’s period drama Sanditon as a coproducer, with the show returning for two more seasons on the US pubcaster’s Masterpiece strand.

BBC Studios and ITV Studios joint-venture BritBox has the rights to premiere the show, based on an unfinished manuscript by Jane Austen, in the UK.

Season two and three will also air on UK broadcaster ITV, which originally commissioned the series jointly with PBS and aired it in 2019.

Justin Young has joined as an executive producer having written four episodes of season one, while the show’s creator, Andrew Davies, is returning as an exec producer. The other exec producers are Belinda Campbell for Red Planet Pictures, Susanne Simpson for Masterpiece and Chloe Tucker for ITV and BritBox.

The series producer is Rebecca Hedderly, with Black Mirror’s Ian Hogan producing.

BBC Studios holds the global rights outside of the US and Canada, where PBS distributes the show. So far, Sanditon has been sold into 176 countries worldwide.
