Plot Synopsis

Based on Jane Austen's final work -- which was unfinished but later published -- SANDITON is a period drama where entrepreneurs, love interests, legacy hunters, hypochondriacs and medical mountebanks come together at a struggling resort aiming to be the next fashionable playground in early 1800s England. The story opens with a coach accident introducing Charlotte Heywood to Tom Parker and later his brother Sidney, commencing adventures in the struggling seaside resort of Sanditon. Aiming to seal a match for her nephew Edward, Lady Denham hosts a pineapple party for the West Indian heiress, Miss Lambe. Edward's beautiful relatives Esther and Clara complicate matters, while Charlotte and Sidney have an awkward confrontation. SANDITON had its U.S. premiere on Sunday, January 12, 2020 on PBS from 9-11pm (check local listings), with back-to-back episodes.
