Fairy Tales

Fairy Tales is a British television drama anthology series which incorporated four classic fairy tales, made popular by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen and Charles Perrault. The tales are transformed into fresh, modern comedy dramas by contemporary writers in the show… Starring some of the UK’s best and brightest acting talent, the stories are both witty and provocative, compelling and emotional; an engaging mix of comedy and drama.

The plan goes awry when Jimmy falls in love with the beautiful reigning champion, Bily Jane Brooke - much to the horror of her over-protective mother.
