Have any of you watched The Lizzie Bennet Diaries? It’s is an American vlog series by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick and has been adapted from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. It premiered on April 9, 2012 and concluded when the 100th episode was posted on March 28, 2013. The episodes are from 2-8 minutes long and the characters talk about the events that happen offscreen or enact certain scenes. The format is unique – there are Q&A sessions and each character has their own social media account. I watched a couple of videos and I loved the freshness of each video and how much the vlogs honor the original story.
In 2013, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries became the first web series to win an Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media – Original Interactive Program. It’s a must-watch for Pride and Prejudice fans. Looks like Jane Austen’s formula will never run out of steam!
