Amazon Reveals Premiere Date for Limited Series 'The Pursuit of Love' Starring Lily James and Emily Beecham

Amazon has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original limited series The Pursuit of Love starring Lily James (Downton Abbey) and Emily Beecham (Into the Badlands).

All 3 episodes of the limited series will be available on Friday, July 30.

Set in Europe between the two World Wars, the story follows the adventures and misadventures of the charismatic and fearless Linda Radlett (James) and her best friend and cousin Fanny Logan (Beecham). 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. As social and political divisions split the nation, their diverging choices raise personal questions that remain intensely relevant today - questions about freedom, about love and sex, and the mystery of the human heart.

The cast also features Dominic West, Dolly Wells, Andrew Scott, Emily Mortimer, Beattie Edmondson, Assaad Bouab, Shazad Latif and Freddie Fox.

Mortimer wrote and directed the series. She executive produces with Charles Collier, Matthew Read and Frith Tiplady.
