Amazon Studios and British network ITV have released a first look at their lavish new adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s classic novel Vanity Fair.

The first official teaser trailer offers nothing in the way of actual footage from the series, however. So don’t get your hopes up. It’s basically just 30 seconds of star Olivia Cooke looking indomitable with her foot on the globe. However, this whole attitude is 100% Becky Sharp, which is at least a positive sign.

Joanne Froggatt Serial Killer Drama ‘Dark Angel’ to Premiere on Masterpiece in May

The only truly great thing to come from the end of Downton Abbey is watching the popular period drama’s cast members move on to new projects. Michelle Dockery is busy playing a con artist on TNT’s Good Behavior. Dan Stevens is a powerful mutant on FX’s X-men drama Legion. Lily James played Cinderella, Natasha Rostova in War and Peace and a zombie-fighting version of Jane Austen’s Elizabeth Bennet.

Now it’s Joanne Froggatt’s turn. Froggatt, who played long-suffering ladies’ maid Anna Bates on Downton, has a new drama coming to Masterpiece this spring. And her role couldn’t be more different than sweet Anna Bates. She’s starring in Dark Angel, a drama that tells the story of infamous Victorian poisoner Mary Cotton. The series will premiere as part of the spring Masterpiece lineup, on Sunday, May 21st.

Contemporary crime drama DCI Banks is returning to ITV for a fifth season!

Stars Stephen Tompkinson and Caroline Catz return in a brand new six-part series, based on the books by acclaimed novelist Peter Robinson.  As in previous seasons, the show will once again feature three self-contained stories told over two episodes each. However, in a new twist, a more serial element will also be added, and woven through all six installments.

ITV has released the first full trailer for its splashy upcoming period drama Victoria, to what is undoubtedly the delight of costume drama fans everywhere.

Doctor Who’s Jenna Coleman stars as the titular queen, in her first major role since departing the TARDIS last year. And if this clip is anything to go by – it seems like it’s probably going to turn out to be a pretty smart career move for her, because Victoria looks great. 

Michael Gambon Stars in ‘Churchill’s Secret,” Coming to Masterpiece This September

A feature length drama on the later years in the life of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill is coming to Masterpiece this Fall, and its subject matter is probably not what you’d expect.

Churchill’s Secret is set to air on PBS on September 19, and the drama tells the story of a little known part of Churchill’s life. Based on the book The Churchill Secret: KBO by Jonathan Smith, the film is set in the summer of 1953, when Churchill – now Prime Minister for a second time and in his 70s – suffers a life-threatening stroke, a fact which is kept from the public at large.
