From Red Planet Pictures

Written only months before Austen’s death in 1817, Sanditon tells the story of the joyously impulsive, spirited and unconventional Charlotte Heywood and her spiky relationship with the humorous, charming (and slightly wild) Sidney Parker. When a chance accident transports her from her rural hometown of Willingden, to the would-be coastal resort of the eponymous title, it exposes Charlotte to the intrigues and dalliances of a seaside town on the make, and the characters, whose fortunes depend on its commercial success. The twists and turns of the plot take viewers from the West Indies, to the rotting alleys of London, exposing the hidden agendas of each character, allowing Charlotte to discover herself and ultimately find love.

Sanditon is a Red Planet Pictures production for ITV co-produced with Masterpiece. The series is distributed by BBC Studios.
