Nancy Mitford’s The Pursuit of Love is set to be adapted for BBC One as a three-part drama.
Moonage Pictures and Open Book Productions are partnering on the project with Emily Mortimer on writing duties.
As first reported on Deadline, Lily James is lined up to star in the mini-series, which is the first in Mitford’s trilogy about the upper-class Radlett family between the wars.
