MASTERPIECE’s lavish adaptation of Jane Austen’s final work stars Rose Williams(“Curfew”) as Austen’s lively, but levelheaded heroine, Charlotte Heywood; Theo James (“Divergent,” “Downton Abbey”) as the humorous, charming (and slightly wild!) Sidney Parker; Anne Reid(“Years and Years”) as the forthright grande dame of Sanditon, Lady Denham; Kris Marshall (“Love Actually”) as Sanditon’s compulsively enterprising promoter, Tom Parker; and Crystal Clarke (“Ordeal by Innocence”) as the mysterious West Indian heiress, Miss Lambe.
Set during the Regency Period, Tom Parker is obsessed with turning the sleepy seaside village of Sanditon into a fashionable health resort, and he enlists the financial backing of the local, curmudgeonly wealthy widow, Lady Denham. Through a mishap while traveling through the countryside, Tom and his wife, Mary, make the acquaintance of the Heywoods, a local farming family. While describing his plans for Sanditon, their eldest daughter Charlotte is intrigued and excited and Tom invites her for an extended stay at the seaside town.

Upon her initial arrival, the sensible and naïve Charlotte observes hypochondria, avarice and attempted seduction run amok. Lady Denham is playing matchmaker for her destitute nephew, Sir Edward, who is determined to seduce Lady Denham’s ward, Clara and become the primary heir to his aunt’s estate. The arrival of wealthy, mixed-race heiress Miss Lambe, under the guardianship of Tom’s upright brother Sidney, due to a promise he made to Lambe’s father on his deathbed, adds an interesting complication. Eligible men naturally find Miss Lambe fascinating, while Charlotte is intrigued by Sidney… All eight episodes of the first season of “Sanditon” are available to binge now
"Mrs. Wilson"
Ruth Wilson (“The Affair,” “Luther)” stars in a true-life story of her own grandmother's love and betrayal. At the outset of World War II, Alison McKelvie took a secretarial job with the Secret Intelligence Service. There, she fell in love with an older man—Major Alexander Wilson, Iain Glen (“Downton Abbey,” “Game of Thrones”), a popular author of spy novels then doing real intelligence work for the war effort. Little did Alison know, but she was entering a plot as tangled as one of the Major’s mind-bending fictions. Ruth Wilson stars as her own grandmother Alison in the true story of a woman’s search for her husband’s real identity.

Also starring Keeley Hawes (“Bodyguard,” “The Durrells in Corfu”) as Alec’s second wife, Dorothy; Fiona Shaw (“Killing Eve,” “Harry Potter”) as his British spymaster, Coleman; Anupam Kher (“The Big Sick,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) as his handler in India, Shahbaz Karim; and Patrick Kennedy (“Churchill’s Secret,” “Boardwalk Empire”) as Dennis, Alec’s son, whose surprise appearance spurs Alison’s quest into her husband’s mysterious past.

"The Miniaturist"
Adapted from Jessie Burton’s internationally best-selling novel, The Miniaturist is a ravishing three-part period thriller.
It is 1686 and 18-year-old Nella Oortman (Anya Taylor-Joy, EmmaThe Witch) arrives in Amsterdam to meet her wealthy merchant husband Johannes Brandt (Alex Hassell, Genius: Picasso), but is instead met by his sister Marin (Romola Garai, Churchill’s Secret, The Hour). When Johannes appears, he presents her with a wedding gift: a cabinet that is a miniature replica of their home, to be furnished by an elusive Miniaturist, whose tiny creations mirror what is happening within the house in unexpected ways and seem to be predicting and unraveling the future with unsettling precision.

As Nella begins to uncover its secrets and those of the Brandt household, she realizes the escalating dangers that await them all. Does the Miniaturist hold their fate in her hands? And will she be the key to their salvation or the architect of their downfall? All three episodes of “The Miniaturist” are available to watch now.

Louisa Durrell (Keeley Hawes, Bodyguard) and her band of wayward kids (including Josh O’Connor of Emma and The Crown) abandon dreary Bournemouth for the unspoiled beaches and fauna of Corfu, where hijinks, romance and hilarity ensue. It’s based on naturalist Gerald Durrell’s charm-infused autobiographical account of his family’s years in Corfu, My Family and Other Animals, and it doesn’t just offer the escapism of blue skies and azure seas—it also has puppies and accordions.
