Anne of Green Gables, one of Canada's most beloved literary heroines, is getting a makeover with a new CBC-TV series.

A female-led team of award-winning producers has signed on to create a new version of the Lucy Maud Montgomery classic simply entitled Anne, which will follow a similar storyline to the original novel about the spirited 13-year-old but also "chart new territory."

Production for an initial eight episodes is slated to begin this spring, with an eye on a 2017 debut — more than 30 years after CBC-TV first brought Anne Shirley into Canadian homes with the miniseries Anne of Green Gables.

"Adapting Anne's story really excites me," said Moira Walley-Beckett, Canadian Emmy-winner producer of Breaking Bad and Golden Globe nominee for Flesh and Bone as well as one of the executive producers of the new project.

"Anne's issues are contemporary issues: feminism, prejudice, bullying and a desire to belong. The stakes are high and her emotional journey is tumultuous. I'm thrilled to delve deeply into this resonant story, push the boundaries and give it new life."

Walley-Beckett will produce the project with fellow Canadian Miranda de Pencier (Thanks for Sharing, Beginners) and colleagues Alison Owen (Suffragette, Temple Grandin) and Debra Hayward (Pride and Prejudice, Les Misérables).

Montgomery's tales about the the red-headed orphan Anne Shirley have long inspired creators of TV, film and the stage: there have been more than two dozen different adaptations over the years.

The character is regularly referenced in pop culture and her stories continue to draw myriad tourists to Prince Edward Island, her fictional home.

The announcement quickly sparked excitement among fans online.




I am kind of curious how this will be and part of me just thinks they shouldn't fix something that isn't broken.

Umm, this has me nervous. A Breaking Bad producer who is talking about 'pushing boundaries'??? Of Anne of Green Gables?!?! How???? LEAVE it alone!!! NOT Ok at all...sorry but I don't have a good feeling about this at all. scratchead Does Kevin Sullivan still own the rights to this?

Thanks. I still don't really like the idea of this.

I'm not sure what to expect, but I certainly don't see Martin Sheen as quiet, shy Matthew Cuthbert.

I think its great that they are bringing a good clean family show to TV, In this day and age its hard to find, It will just be hard to enjoy it for the people who are big fans of the Kevin Sullivan movies. but i do plan on giving it a shot.

I agree that we need more shows likes this, but just like Fuller House will be a modern, edgier version of Full House, I wonder what the new AOGG will be. The subheading of the article I read states: 'Anne's issues are contemporary issues: feminism, prejudice, bullying and a desire to belong.' Not necessarily untrue, but they need to be carefully handled.

I guess in this day and age they need to make it more edgier to get the younger kids to watch

I think that the producers *think* that they need to make things edgier for kids (or adults) to watch, but I don't believe that's true. I think that family-friendly programming would still be popular if it was still produced.

Yes! That is true. I they they are going to ruin AOGG if they need to do this.

It's funny, because some nice, family-friendly show will come on and be a blockbuster in the ratings.  Hollywood says, "Wow, I guess there's a market for this sort of thing!"  Then they just seem to forget about it until another one comes along. At which point they say, "Wow, I guess... etc., etc." Smile

Indeed Rob! Hollywood is stupid in a way, I hope NBC doesn't do this with LHOTP.

Megan Follows will always be Anne for me and Jonathan Crombie will always be Gilbert, the original AOGG is untouchable...



But I will give this one a chance - I'd like to see it when it comes out :)

Here is a trailer!

I don't like the looks of this one... once you see the one with Megan Follows and Jonathan Crombie, nobody else can play those roles (or any of the other roles for that matter). Megan was absolutely a natural at playing Anne. They shouldn't try to fix something that isn't broken.

Yes! I feel the same. I didn't even watch the new movie. I just can't bring myself to,
