Died & Gone to a Jane Austen/Masterpiece Theatre Heaven

I nearly fainted when I heard about The Complete Jane Austen, a series of Masterpiece Theatre adaptations of all six of her beloved novels (including four new productions!) plus a drama based on her life.  This is a dream come true for me—a true fan of Jane Austen and Masterpiece Theatre.  PBS totally rules!

The series begins next Sunday.  Here's the schedule:

January 13, 2008: Persuasion (new production)
January 20, 2008: Northanger Abbey (new production)
January 27, 2008: Mansfield Park (new production)
February 3, 2008: Miss Austen Regrets
February 10, 17, + 24, 2008: Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth
March 23, 2008: Emma with Kate Beckinsale
March 30 + April 6, 2008: Sense and Sensibility (new production)

In the meantime, check out the second part of Jane Eyre this Sunday on PBS-MPT.  The first part will be aired on PBS-WETA.
