When to Tune In: Airing Sunday May 13 and Sunday May 20 at 8 p.m. 

Loved by generations of women worldwide, Little Women is a truly universal coming of age story. Set against the backdrop of the Civil War, the story follows sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March on their journey from childhood to adulthood. With the help of their mother, Marmee, and while their father is away at war, the girls navigate what it means to be a young woman: from sibling rivalry and first love, to loss and marriage.

Based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott, this three-part adaptation from the award-winning creator of Call the Midwife Heidi Thomas (CranfordUpstairs Downstairs) will be directed by Vanessa Caswill (ThirteenMy Mad Fat Diary).
