So, this is apparently going to be a thing:

Veronica Mars writer takes on Les Mis

I shouldn't be surprised they're modern AUing it given how well Sherlock and Elementary have been doing.  They're going about it in a... unique way, though.  Jean Valjean as a lawyer with a "tumultous family and romantic life".  Uh... what romantic life?  Family life, sure, and that ends up screwed six ways to Sunday multiple times, but I think the only one who might be even less clued into romance than Enjolras is Valjean.

This was not what I meant when I said I desperately wanted a TV mini-series.  It might be entertaining, though.

Ugh. Just ugh. Bet he's with Fantine.

Either, Fantine lives, and they are the endgame couple. Or, this starts in the Madeleine era, and Valjean is married to someone who has no idea that he's a past criminal. Which, still doesn't preclude an eventual Valjean/Fantine ending. That'll be tricky to navigate, though. There's just so much of a power difference and obligation there.

It's interesting, and I really, really hope that they name the show something that is not Les Miserables. Personally, it's easier to take huge canon divergences when the name isn't exactly the same. I'm not super interested in Valjean's character, so I'll probably be passing over this show. But it'll be interesting to see how it does and where it goes.
