When does ‘Beecham House’ start on ITV?

ITV has announced when Beecham House will begin in the UK.

Created by the writer and director of Bend It Like Beckham, the upcoming period drama series is set on the cusp of the 19th century in India.

Beecham House is based in Delhi, before the British ruled the region, and follows the residents of the titular house, an imposing mansion surrounded by acres of exotic woods and pristine lawns.

Episode 1 airs at 9pm on Sunday 23rd June on ITV.

The second episode will air the following night at 9pm on Monday 24th June on ITV, with subsequent episodes airing on Sunday nights.

Beecham House will air in the USA later this year on Masterpiece on PBS.
