FIRST LOOK Les Misérables

Today the BBC have released three first-look images of Dominic West as Jean Valjean, David Oyelowo as Javert and Lily Collins as Fantine from BBC One’s upcoming epic drama Les Misérables.

Viewers will catch a first glimpse of Les Miseérables during a BBC Drama trailer on BBC One around the World Cup final.

Andrew Davies’ six-part drama adaptation of Victor Hugo's 19th century classic will air in 2019 and delve deep into the many layers of Hugo's story, revelling in Jean Valjean and Javert's cat-and-mouse relationship, against the epic backdrop of France at a time of civil unrest. With striking intensity and contemporary resonance, Hugo’s novel explores the struggles and triumphs of the underclass and the quest for a better life.
