(PBS) – PBS Guam KGTF Channel 12 announces the premiere of MASTERPIECE: LITTLE WOMEN.

Loved by generations of women worldwide, Little Women is a coming-of-age story that is as relevant and engaging today as it was on its original publication in 1868. This timeless novel created by Louisa May Alcott is set against the backdrop of the Civil War. The story follows the four March sisters (Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy), with the help of their mother on their journey from childhood to adulthood while their father is away at war.

The girls navigate what it means to be a young woman: from learning their role as women, to sibling rivalry, first love, loss and marriage.

Tune in to the two-part drama series premiering on PBS Guam – KGTF Channel 12, on
Monday, May 14 at 8pm, and concludes on Monday, May 21 at 8pm.
