The lavish new BBC adaptation of Howards End officially comes to America this Spring – on Starz. The premium cable network will air the four-part period drama beginning on Sunday, April 8.

Based on E.M. Forster’s classic novel of the same name, Howards End follows two unconventional and independent sisters – Margaret and Helen Schlegel – as they seek love and meaning in an ever-changing world. That’s the vaguest description of this story possible, which also includes love, loss, matchmaking, poor decisions, class issues, financial ruin and more.
