The miniseries adaptation of The Pursuit of Loveacclaimed novelist Nancy Mitford’s long-enduring romantic tale set during the throes of wartime—made a splash when it premiered in the UK months ago, and now it's crossing the Atlantic.

Telling the whimsical story of British upper-class cousins Linda Radlett (Lily James) and Fanny Logan (Emily Beecham) as they navigate life between World War I and World War II, the series is directed and written by Emily Mortimer. The plot tackles love, friendship, desire, and finding one’s place as a woman. The star-studded cast also includes Dominic Scott, Andrew West, Dolly Wells, John Heffernan, Shazad Latif, and Annabel Mullion. A coming-of-age tale, the miniseries captures the essence of problems faced today, breaking through the traditional buttoned-up feel of period dramas. Sound interesting? Here's how to watch.
