Encore has postponed the premiere of four-part miniseries ''The Crimson Petal and the White' from March to September.

Starring Romola Garai (''The Hour''), Chris O'Dowd, Gillian Anderson, Shirley Henderson and Richard E. Grant, the adaptation of Michel Faber's novel is set in a Victorian-era London brothel.

Lucinda Coxon wrote the adaptation, directed by Marc Munden. David M. Thompson is producing. It aired last year in the U.K. on BBC Two.
