NEW YORK – Indian American filmmaker Mira Nair will be signing on with BBC to direct their adaptation of Vikram Seth’s novel “A Suitable Boy,” according to a Variety report.

The series is being adapted by Emmy-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies who is well known for the Bridget Jones franchise as well as shows like “War And Peace” and “House Of Cards,” according to a Deadline report.

Nair is known for directing movies like “Monsoon Wedding” and “Salaam Bombay!”  which was nominated for a best foreign-language Oscar.
