Jane Austen gets a 21st century twist in the new web series, Emma Approved. The famous novel about tangled romance and matchmaking gets updated to the modern day United States, where Emma Woodhouse is now a professional matchmaker and lifestyle coach and Mr. Knightly is Alex Knightly, her business partner.
This funny and engaging web series follows the vlog format of its predecessor, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (based on Pride and Prejudice). Emma Approved expertly reinterprets the characters and conflict of the original novel in a fun and zany, modern setting. Each short video is dedicated to Emma's days in the office with her colleagues and watching hi-jinks ensue as she attempts to find romance for her mild-mannered assistant. From pre-wedding jitters to social-climbing politicians, this Emma update is the Clueless for the Internet.
