Mapp and Lucia is a British drama television series that was first broadcast on BBC One from 29 to 31 December 2014. The three-part series, adapted by Steve Pemberton and directed by Diarmuid Lawrence, is based on E. F. Benson's Mapp and Lucia collection of novels

Mapp and Lucia was commissioned by Charlotte Moore and Ben Stephenson for BBC One.Filming took place in and around Rye during the summer of 2014 as well as Kent and East Sussex Railway Station in Tenterden.

Pemberton confirmed on The Paul O'Grady Show that the series will not be returning.
