Jane Austen Dramas Make Their North American Premieres On December 16th.

TVO (a non-profit, public educational media organization located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada - the PBS of Ontario) will present three Jane Austen Dramas on the following dates:

Northanger Abbey – Sunday December 16, 2007 at 9 pm
Mansfield Park – Sunday December 23, 2007 at 9 pm
Persuasion – Sunday December 30, 2007 at 9 pm

Jane Austen never seems to go out of style attracting new generations of fans who find relevance in her tales of romance and young heroines navigating their way through the trappings of society. In December TVO presents three new dramas fashioned for a contemporary audience that capture the timelessness of Jane Austen's works. These splendidly crafted films will only add to the Jane addiction for fans and attract new admirers in a banner year that also saw the release of the Hollywood feature films The Jane Austen Book Club (2007) and Becoming Jane (2007).

Jeanette Kong, producer at the station, writes, "We're creating our own Jane Austen web pages and I've produced three videos on themes found in Jane Austen's work featuring Janeites Elsa Solender, Louise Yearwood, and Eileen McCurdy, as well as clips from the films. These
videos will be available exclusively on beginning on Dec. 6th."
