Emmy-nominated producer Michele Buck is heralded for her adaptations of classic literature. In 1982, she broke into the U.K. television industry as a production assistant, and by 1988 the ambitious Buck had become a full-fledged producer on the motel-centered TV drama "Crossroads." She has since developed into a renowned executive producer, who has had a hand in more than 75 television productions. In 2001, she garnered her first taste of international acclaim, earning an Emmy nomination for "Hornblower: Mutiny," a miniseries based on Horatio Hornblower of C.S. Forester's popular novels. She earned her second Emmy nod for the 2003 follow-up, "Hornblower: Duty," and her third for her serial adaptations of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple mysteries, which included "Marple: What Ms. McGillicuddy Saw," "Marple: The Body in the Library," "Marple: The Murder at the Vicarage," and "Marple: A Murder Is Announced." Adaptations have become Buck's strong suit, and she continues to bring beloved literary characters to television. Aside from many more Miss Marple TV movies, Buck has executive produced a number of intriguing adaptations, turning Emily Brontë's classic "Wuthering Heights" into a TV movie, spinning "Agatha Christie's Poirot" into a crime-drama series, and modernizing Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" into the cheeky miniseries "Lost in Austen," in which an avid contemporary Austen fan is dropped into the midst of her favorite novel. Buck's talent for transforming classic works into compelling television has brought an undeniable sense of class to TV.
