A British mini-series consisting of four Shakespeare plays updated to the modern day with modern sensibilitiesMuch Ado About NothingMacbethThe Taming of the ShrewA Midsummer Night's Dream
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: Puck does this constantly.
- Composite Character: Egeus (Hermia's father) and Theseus (the Duke of Athens) are combined into a single character named Theo.
- Theseus's fiancée Hippolyta becomes Polly, Theo's wife of many years and mother of Hermia, so this may also count. (Hermia's mother never appears in the original play, but it's a fair bet that she existed at some point.)
- Interspecies Romance: Titania and Oberon.
