Shonda Rhimes's New Netflix Show, Premieres on Christmas
"I’ve been a fan of Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton series since I can remember. The originality. The sexiness. The storytelling. Everything about it. I quickly knew that @shondaland had to turn them into a series," -- Shonda Rhimes tweeted in a series of posts.
"There isn’t anyone better that I can think of than our Shondaland family @chrisvandusen to be the pioneer for this project. To have @regejean , Phoebe Dynevor, and @JulieAndrews — yes, THE Julie Andrews — be part of this talented cast is a bonus,"-- More Rhimes added in the next tweet.
In her last tweet, Shonda confirmed the release date of Bridgerton Netflix series, "People. Get ready. Get excited. Things are happening. We’ll see you on December 25th."
The show will be the streaming giant’s first under the Shondaland umbrella, two years after Shonda made her huge deal with them, which was reportedly in the neighbourhood of $150 million dollars.
What's The Storyline? The plot follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the oldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family, as she makes her debut in London society and searches for a husband. She soon crosses paths with the rakish Duke of Hastings (Rege-Jean Page). All the while, the mysterious Lady Whistledown (voiced by Julie Andrews) tracks everyone’s scandals.
The Netflix series has vintage casting, painting a diverse picture of 19th-century England, directed by longtime Shondaland collaborator Chris Van Dusen (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal).
