Hugo's 1862 novel, which was transformed into the hit musical by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg, has been adapted into a six-part series by Andrew Davies (War and Peace) and has been filmed in France and Belgium.

The series will not feature the famous songs featured in the stage show and will focus on Valjean and Javert's story set amidst civil unrest in 19th century France.
