BBC’s Expectation developing a new TV remake of Anna Karenina

According to Deadline, BBC Studios’ Expectation is in the process of developing a brand new TV adaptation of acclaimed Russian author Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel Anna Karenina. The TV remake will be penned by The Girl writer Gwyneth Hughes.

Anna Karenina is a tragic romance novel which was published in 1878. It follows the story of many major characters that is led by Princess Anna Karenina, who has entered into a scandalous affair with Cavalry officer Vronsky. The story unfolds in its original late-19th-century Russia high-society setting and powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart, from the passion between adulterers to the bond between a mother and her children. As Anna questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.
