Mumbai, Dec 13 (PTI): Period drama series “Dangerous Liaisons” will stream exclusively on Lionsgate Play in India starting December 23, the digital platform said on Tuesday.
Created and written by Harriet Warner, the series is a modern take on French author Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’ classic 18th century novel “Les Liaisons dangereuses”.
Set in 1700, the upcoming show follows iconic literary lovers — the Marquise de Merteuil (Alice Englert) and the Vicomte de Valmont (Nicholas Denton) — as they navigate wonder, terror, beauty, seduction and deception in pre-revolutionary Paris.
Englert said the dynamic between Valmont and Camille attracted her to the project.
“When I read it and realised that we were going to see these two toxic people when they had a sense of innocence in them, when they were still struggling with what they eventually perpetuated, I felt that was fascinating. That thought was so cool,” the actor said in a statement.
Working on the show was a “special opportunity” for Denton.
