BritBox’s The Confessions of Frannie Langton | Sara Collins and Karla-Simone Spence on Historical Fiction Mystery

Karla-Simone Spence in The Confessions of Frannie Langton

The Regency Era of England introduces the period before the accession of Queen Victoria with its gentlemen’s and ladies’ culture, Jane Austen’s romance, music, and paintings. The same period also introduced the transition away from slavery, the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and Romanticism.

In Sara Collins’ fictional series, The Confessions of Frannie Langton, the four-part series introduces a dramatic mystery of a woman accused of a double murder of high society members of England.

Karla-Simone Spence (Blue Story, Wannabe) leads the cast in the role of Frannie Langton, a young protagonist born into slavery and fighting to tell her story. The series also stars Sophie Cookson (The Trial of Christine Keeler, Kingsman: The Secret Service) as Madame Marguerite Benham and Patrick Martins (Redemption, Blasts From The Past) as Olaudah “Laddie” Cambridge.

Here is the description of the series:

Set against the dazzling opulence of Georgian London, The Confessions of Frannie Langton, narrates Frannie’s journey from a Jamaican plantation to the grand Mayfair mansion of celebrated scientist George Benham and his exquisitely beautiful wife, Madame Marguerite Benham. In a misguided and monstrous gesture, Frannie is gifted to Benham by the man who owns her, John Langton, and she is employed as a maid in the household, much to her chagrin.
