Anne of Green Gables–the 1908 novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery about an abused orphan girl named Anne growing up on a farm in Canada's Prince Edward Island–is one of the most beloved children's books of all time. And the 1985 eponymous television mini-series is a classic in its own right.
But now, Netflix is bringing an adaptation of the young adult book to a whole new generation. On Monday, it was announced that the provider was teaming up with CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Provider), to create a brand-new series called Anne.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 8-episode drama will be written by Moira Walley-Beckett (Breaking Bad) and directed by Niki Caro (Whale Rider). Filming is scheduled to begin in Ontario this September. It will hit Netflix in 2017, and also air on CBC in Canada.
"Anne Shirley is one of Canada's greatest gifts to the world, known and loved internationally, so we're thrilled to be working with the CBC and Northwood to bring this charismatic character to both new and old fans around the world," Netflix VP of content, Elizabeth Bradley said.
