20 minutes of footage from the new six-part limited series adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s classic War And Peace at Mipcom this week has resulted in Lifetime, A&E Network and History partnering with Harvey Weinstein and the BBC.

With an all-star cast (among them Paul Dano, Lily James, James Norton, Jim Broadbent, Gillian Anderson, Tuppence Middleton and Srephen Rea) and music written by Martin Phipps, the hype is quite rightly gathering momentum!

The series will air on BBC One in early 2016.
