Jane Austen and Lifetime

I am straight-up appalled by this idea: Jennifer Love Hewitt is teaming up with Lifetime to develop Darcy's Town, a "modern retelling of Jane Austen's literary classic Pride and Prejudice set in a small Virginia town". I was much less horrified by the article's mention of another Austen-inspired TV project—an untitled Sense and Sensibility update for CBS they describe as "a modern reworking of [the novel] set in the world of medicine, where three devoted sisters have their lives turned upside down when the father who abandoned them during their childhood returns, seeking more than forgiveness." But that's just because I don't particularly like Sense and Sensibility.
