What is Vanity Fair about?
The William Makepeace Thackeray classic was first released in 1847-48 as a 19-volume monthly serial.
It follows the lives of Becky Sharp and Emmy Sedley, their friends, and families during and after the Napoleonic Wars.
Becky attempts to claw her way out of poverty and scale the heights of English Society, taking her all the way to the court of King George IV, via the Battle of Waterloo, breaking hearts and losing fortunes as she goes.
Head of drama, Polly Hill, said of the series: “Vanity Fair feels like the perfect classic to adapt for ITV, and Gwyneth Hughes’ stunning scripts bring the novel to life in a way that will really connect with a modern audience.”
