Jane Austen Revisioned

I am definitely a Jane Austen fan. So, I was thrilled when I stumbled across a revamping of Pride and Prejudice for modern audiences in a web series called The Lizzie Bennett Diaries.

For the uninitiated, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is a modern-day web series adaptation of Jane Austen‘s Pride and Prejudice that tells the story of the Bennets, Charlotte Lu, William Darcy (and his hats), Bing Lee, Pemberley Digital, and the rest of P&P through vlogs and social media accounts run by the characters. It’s the social media aspect that netted the show its Emmy for Original Interactive Program. – The Mary Sue

This web series wrapped up in March of this year and following the success of the creators behind The Lizzie Bennett Diaries are bringing us Emma Approved. Emma Approved will start airing on Youtube sometime in the fall, and will likely take place in the same universe as The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Welcome to Sanditon.
