This one nearly slipped through my search filters! According to the Evening Standard, there is a month long (!?) series being commissioned by Drama TV to celebrate Jane Austen.
From the article (you’ll have to scroll down and look for the subtitle, “Darcy was not such a hunk”):
To launch its Jane Austen season beginning on Sunday, the TV channel Drama has commissioned a pair of distinguished academics, Professors John Sutherland and Amanda Vickery, to spend a month deciding what “the real Mr Darcy” would have looked like.
Being sound mind and a librarian, I went looking on Drama’s website and searched high and low for a press release with this announcement but couldn’t find squat.
(note: Drama is a UK television station so no word if it will make it to the U.S. ALSO, I stand by my choice of Matthew McFayden as Darcy as he is most dreamy.)
