Written and developed by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders, Taboo, See), the miniseries will take a darker approach to the 1843 British novella following Ebenezer Scrooge, a bitter old man who despises the Christmas holiday. Over the course of Christmas Eve night, he is visited by three ghosts to show him his past, present and future should he stay on the hateful path he is currently on.

Pearce (Iron Man 3) will lead the cast as Scrooge, with Andy Serkis (Venom 2) set to star as Ghost of Christmas Past, Stephen Graham (Rocketman) as Jacob Marley, Charlotte Riley (Trust) as Lottie, Joe Alwyn (The Favourite) as Bob Cratchit, Vinette Robinson (Sherlock) as Mary Cratchit, Jason Flemyng (Pennyworth) as Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come and Kayvon Novak (What We Do in the Shadows) as Ali Baba.

The series will be executive produced by Tom Hardy (Venom), who is also attached in a mystery role, alongside Knight and Ridley Scott (All the Money in the World), with BBC One handling international broadcasts while FX will debut the miniseries in the US. Nick Murphy (The Awakening) also helmed the three part miniseries.
