‘Anne of Green Gables’ TV Adaptation Picked Up at Netflix

The eight-episode drama will stream globally on Netflix and air on CBC in Canada in 2017. Like the famed book by Lucy Maud Montgomery, the series centers on a young orphaned girl in 1890, who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an elderly spinster and her aging brother. Over time, 13-year-old Anne transforms their lives and eventually the small town in which they live with her spirit, intellect and imagination. – Kate Stanhope, The Hollywood Reporter http://ift.tt/2bc3SI5
