ITV has announced when The Confessions of Frannie Langton will air on UK television!
The “dark and gripping forbidden love story” is set against the dazzling opulence of Georgian London in 19th century England.
Until now, however, the series has only been available for UK viewers on the streaming service.
Watch the trailer here:
The Confessions of Frannie Langton narrates Frannie’s journey from a Jamaican plantation to the grand Mayfair mansion of celebrated scientist George Benham and his exquisitely beautiful wife, Madame Marguerite Benham.
In a misguided and monstrous gesture, Frannie is gifted to Benham by the man who owns her, John Langton, and she is employed as a maid in the household much to her chagrin.
When’s the release date?
The first episode will air on ITV1 at 9pm on Monday 21 August.
The remaining episodes follow each night over the rest of the week at the same time, with the finale airing at 9pm on Thursday 24 August.
If you can’t wait, all four instalments are already streaming on ITVX in the UK.
American viewers can watch the series on BritBox now.
Karla-Simone Spence (Blue Story) leads the cast as the book’s young protagonist, born into a life of slavery and fighting to tell her own story.
She’s joined by Sophie Cookson (The Trial of Christine Keeler), Patrick Martins (Redemption), Stephen Campbell Moore (War of The Worlds), Steven MacIntosh (Rocketman), and Henry Pettigrew (The Danish Girl).
Sara Collins’ novel The Confessions of Frannie Langton is available on Amazon.
