The Miniaturist on Masterpiece is a ravishing three-part period thriller adapted from Jessie Burton's internationally best-selling novel. The series begins Friday, September 28 at 9 p.m.

From the PBS website:

In 1686, 18-year-old Nella Oortman (Anya Taylor-Joy) arrives in Amsterdam to meet her wealthy merchant husband Johannes Brandt (Alex Hassel), but is instead met by his sister Marin (Romola Garai). When Johannes appears, he presents Nella with a wedding gift: a cabinet that is a miniature replica of their home, to be furnished by an elusive Miniaturist.

The Miniaturist's tiny creations mirror what is happening within the house in unexpected ways and seem to be predicting and unraveling the future with unsettling precision. As Nella begins to uncover the house's secrets and those of the Brandt household, she realizes the escalating dangers that await them all.

Does the Miniaturist hold their fate in her hands? And will she be the key to their salvation or the architect of their downfall?
