“The Pursuit of Love” brings “Cinderella” heroine Lily James and “Fleabag” actor Andrew Scott.”

An adaptation of the novel by the same name by Nancy Mitford published in 1945, the romantic comedy-drama follows the adventures of two young aristocrats, Linda Radlett and her cousin and best friend Fanny, in the English countryside during the inter-war period.


Shooting has restarted

The project helmed by Emily Mortimer was forced to stop filming last spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is now one of the first to pick back up, shooting in Bristol and Bath on England’s southwest coast.


While James stars as Linda Radlett, the identity of Scott’s character has yet to be announced. Emily Beecham will play Fanny Logan, Linda’s cousin.

They will be joined by Dominic West, Dolly Wells, Mortimer, Beattie Edmondson, Assaad Bouab, Shazad Latif and Freddie Fox.

BBC One will air the new miniseries in the United Kingdom. IB
