Masterpiece Classic: Sharpe's Challenge
Airs Sunday, March 28, 2010 at 9 p.m. on KPBS TV
Sharpe's seemingly impossible mission: storm an impenetrable fortress, rescue the daughter of a British general and quell the rebellion. With the odds stacked against him, Sharpe confronts shifting allegiances, incompetent leadership within the British troops, the conniving seduction of Madhuvanthi (Padma Lakshmi, "Top Chef") and an explosive confrontation with an old foe. Has Sharpe finally found one challenge he won't be able to conquer?
"Sharpe's Challenge" will be available for online viewing March 29 - April 27, 2010.
