PBS MASTERPIECE Based on Celebrated Books
We can’t get behind all book to screen adaptations, but we know PBS adaptations are worth watching. We were thrilled to find out that MASTERPIECE on PBS is airing a new 6-part adaptation of Gerald Durrell’s beloved memoir, My Family and Other Animals (and its two sequels). The show, entitled “The Durrells in Corfu,” premieres on Sunday, October 16. According to our friends at PBS, it is “beyond charming and remarkably cast.” We believe them, and you will too once you watch the trailer. And in case you haven’t already discovered the show “Poldark,” based on the historical novels by Winston Graham, it returned for a second season September 25. Enjoy!
