High society scandals are set to unravel in the upcoming series, Bridgerton, by creator Chris Van Dusen and Shonda Rhimes’ production company, Shondaland.
The show is like Gossip Girl but set in Regency-era England, as it follows the scions of London’s uppercrust families as they race to make matches in a competitive marriage market.
It tells the story of Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family, who seeks to marry for love, like her parents. Her prospects seem great at first, but as her older brother rules out her suitors, she finds herself at the center of a high society scandal column written by the anonymous Lady Whistledown (voiced by Julie Andrews).
In the middle of it all, she finds herself growing increasingly attracted to coveted bachelor, the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page).
Bridgerton is set to premiere on Netflix on December 25. – Rappler.com
