Do you remember All Creatures Great and Small? Variety reports the UK TV show is being rebooting for PBS Masterpiece.
Based on the books by James Herriot, the original series followed “country veterinarians in 1930s rural England.” The cast included Christopher Timothy, Robert Hardy, Peter Davison, and Carol Drinkwater. The show ran on the BBC from 1978 to 1990.
The reboot of All Creatures Great and Small comes from Wolf Hall producers Playground and is set to begin filming in 2020. The series will air on Channel 5 in the UK and on PBS Masterpiece in the U.S.
From Playground CEO Colin Callender:
“At a time when the country feels more divided than ever, Herriot’s glorious books remind us how to connect and belong again. The series will embrace the fun and the nostalgia of revisiting the England of the past, while celebrating Herriot’s values that, despite all our current upheaval, still underpin British life today.”
