Masterpiece Launches New Season
Sunday nights continue to be the destination for drama on KUED. Highlights include a new Masterpiece series, The Miniaturist, premiering Sunday, September 9. New seasons of The Durrells in Corfu and the viewer favorite, Poldark, begin Sunday, September 30.
The Miniaturist on Masterpiece – Sundays Sept. 9,16, & 23, 8PM
Adapted from Jessie Burton’s internationally best-selling novel, The Miniaturist is set in 1686 when 18-year-old Nella Oortman arrives in Amsterdam to meet her wealthy merchant husband, Johannes Brandt. When Johannes appears, he presents her with a wedding gift — a cabinet that is a miniature replica of their home, to be furnished by an elusive miniaturist, whose tiny creations mirror what is happening within the house in unexpected ways and seem to be predicting and unraveling the future with unsettling precision.
The Durrells in Corfu Season 3 on Masterpiece - Begins Sun. Sept. 30, 7PM
Hailed by The Wall Street Journal as “an island of charm,” The Durrells in Corfu returns for a third season of eccentric family adventures on a Greek Isle in the 1930s. The series stars Keeley Hawes as the plucky widowed mother, Louis Durrell. Her family includes the animal-loving youngest son, the eldest son destined to become a famous novelist, a hapless sportsman, and a lovelorn teenage daughter. The bohemian Durrells fit right in with the light-hearted Greeks — except when they disastrously don’t.
Poldark Season 4 on Masterpiece - Begins Sun. Sept. 30, 8PM
The rip-roaring TV drama called “swoon-worthy” by the Los Angeles Times returns for a fourth season of action-packed episodes, starring Aidan Turner as the dashing Captain Ross Poldark and Eleanor Tomlinson as his fiery partner, Demelza. Season 4 gets off to an epic start when Ross gears up to move to London to become a member of Parliament to improve the lives of those around him.
