"What we're going to do is take it a little bit deeper, and start to really explore backgrounds and characters, the immigrant experience during that time, the economic challenges during that time. Really just be a little braver about telling the real stories, you know, what people were really experiencing."
—Jean Lambur, executive producer

L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables is a 2016 Canadian television film created by Breakthrough Entertainment. Initially announced as a thirteen-episode series in July 2012,[2] it was directed by John Kent Harrison, written by Susan Coyne and starred Ella Ballentine, Martin Sheen and Sara Botsford.


It is the year 1907 on beautiful Prince Edward Island. Anne Shirley is mistakenly sent there to Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, a middle-aged brother and sister who had intended to adopt a boy to help them on their farm.

Anne must make her way with the Cuthberts, in school and in the town of Avonlea to ensure she is never sent back to the orphanage again.

Based on the globally beloved classic children’s novel, that was first published in 1908 by Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables is the story of a fiercely imaginative little girl who, with her irrepressible spirit, touches the lives of everyone that she meets. In particular, it is the story of Anne’s stormy relationship with the strait-laced Marilla Cuthbert who discovers through Anne a capacity for love that she never knew she had.
