If you never owned an Anne of Green Gables book as child, you can stop reading now. But if you’re like me and still have the set, you’re going to rejoice like I am.
CBC has ordered an eight-series show, titled, Anne, and will follow the orphan teen’s adventures.
Production is set to start this spring and the show is predicted to air in 2017. The issues Anne faces will be relatable to today’s modern challenges.
What’s even better? The eight-episode series will be produced by award-winning producers, including Moira Walley-Beckett. Walley-Beckett produced Breaking Bad and is a Golden Globe nominee for Flesh and Bone.
Walley-Beckett tells CBC, “Anne’s issues are contemporary issues: feminism, prejudice, bullying, and a desire to belong. The stakes are high and her emotional journey is tumultuous. I’m thrilled to delve deeply into this resonant story, push the boundaries, and give it new life.”
