Lily James & Andrew Scott to Star in 'Pursuit of Love' Limited Series for Amazon!

Lily James and Andrew Scott are set to star in the upcoming limited series The Pursuit of Love, which will be a joint venture between Amazon and BBC One.

Emily Mortimer will write and direct the three-episode series, which is an adaptation of the novel by Nancy Mitford.

The Pursuit of Love is set in Europe between the two World Wars and “follows Linda Radlett (Lily James) and her best friend and cousin Fanny Logan (Emily Beecham),” according to Variety.

The synopsis continues, “Consumed by a desire for love and marriage, the two women are on the hunt for the ideal husband. Their friendship is put to the test as Fanny settles for a steady life and Linda decides to follow her heart, to increasingly wild and outrageous places.”

Joining Lily and Andrew in the starry cast are Emily, as well as Dominic West, Dolly Wells, and Beattie Edmondson.

“I’ve always loved Nancy Mitford so when I was asked to adapt ‘The Pursuit of Love’ it was impossible to say no,” Emily said in a statement. “It’s an outrageously funny and honest story, whose central character – the wild, love-addicted Linda Radlett – still reads as a radical. I feel privileged to be directing this show and working with the brilliant teams at Open Book, Moonage Pictures, Amazon Studios and the BBC.”

Filming has begun in the United Kingdom.

Lily was recently spotted on an ice cream date with one of the biggest movie stars in the world!
