We have even more news on Sophia’s new project Our Zoo! As you can see, I have added a promotional still of Sophia as Lady Katherine Longmore and I have updated the information on the series’ project page including this character description of Lady Katherine:

Lady Katherine is an exotic misfit in Upton. A well-travelled woman, adventurous and charming, but living almost as a recluse after running from a scandalous event abroad. Her fascination with George’s grand design makes her a powerful muse to him. At times she understands what he’s trying to build better than his own wife. She breezes into the life of the Mottersheads, intriguing Mew and causing tension between George & Lizzie.

The first episode of Our Zoo will air on BBC One Wednesday 3rd September, 9pm

Episode One
Frustrated by living with his wife and two daughters under his parents’ roof and tormented by his war trauma, George decides to change his life and put a bit of beauty back into the world.
Haunted by memories of combat in the Great War, he now finds himself living with his wife and two daughters in his parents’ cramped home above the family grocery store. While delivering goods by the docks one day, he spots an unwanted squirrel monkey and a camel about to be put down in the quarantine bay. George can’t bear to let them suffer so takes them both home to his parents’ backyard instead – much to the family’s bewilderment.

His family sees this as further evidence that he’s losing his mind, but George is busy making plans that will change their lives forever. On the way to an army reunion he comes across a rundown stately home, Oakfield, surrounded by acres of land, and he formulates the idea of buying it and building around it the first British zoo without bars.

Against the odds he persuades the bank to lend him the money to buy Oakfield. But once George has persuaded his sceptical family to move into their new ramshackle house, the whole family faces the tough task of convincing the genteel and hard-to-please villagers to accept them as neighbours. George thinks it best to keep the zoo plans secret, which becomes difficult when Mortimer the monkey escapes into the village.

    Hi Rusty, I don’t think there has been a date given yet but as several shows have made it to the US via BBC America then there is always a chance! If I find out anymore information I will ensure that it is posted to the website and Facebook/Twitter :)
