Find Some Magic in this Sneak Peek of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

British series “Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell” still doesn’t have a firm release date on BBC America other than “sometime this summer,” but it does have a clip to share so settle in for a sneak peek of Honeyfoot (Brian Pettifer) and Segundus (Edward Hogg) of the York Society of Magicians visiting the mysterious recluse Mr Norrell in search of answers as to why magic is no longer practiced in England.

The seven-part series was adapted from Susanna Clarke’s bestselling novel by Peter Harness (“Wallander,” Is Anybody There?) and stars Olivier Award-winning Bertie Carvel and Eddie Marsan, who take on the magical roles of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, respectively. Other cast members include Alice Englert, Marc Warren, Samuel West, and Charlotte Riley.

The series is directed by Toby Haynes, and the producer is Nick Hirschkorn. It is produced by Cuba Pictures for BBC One and co-produced with BBC America, in association with Feel Films, Far Moor, Screen Yorkshire, and Bell Media’s Space. It will be distributed by Endemol Worldwide Distribution.

Synopsis:
Set at the beginning of the 19th century, England no longer believes in practical magic. The reclusive Mr Norrell (Marsan) of Hurtfew Abbey stuns the city of York when he causes the statues of York Cathedral to speak and move. With a little persuasion and help from his man of business, Childermass (Enzo Cilenti), he goes to London to help the government in the war against Napoleon. It is there Norrell summons a fairy (Warren) to bring Lady Pole (Englert) back from the dead, opening a whole can of worms…

Jonathan Strange (Carvel) is charming, rich, and arrogant. While trying to secure his beloved Arabella’s (Riley) hand in marriage, he meets the magician of Threadneedle Street, Vinculus (Paul Kaye), who tells him he is destined to be a great magician. A shaken and disturbed Strange initially dismisses the claims, but intrigue overcomes; and in an attempt to find his occupation, he tries to practice magic…
