BRIDGERTON TV SERIES
BE WARNED: CHEESINESS ARRIVES THIS CHRISTMAS
|Bridgerton will start December 25th|
|Shonda Rhimes is responsible for this|
|The series will thankfully have just 8 episodes|
BRIDGERTON is set in the sexy, lavish and competitive world of Regency London high society. From the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair to the aristocratic palaces of Park Lane and beyond, the series unveils a seductive, sumptuous world replete with intricate rules and dramatic power struggles,where no one is truly ever on steady ground. At the heart of the show is the powerful Bridgerton family. Comprised of eight close knit siblings (each of them has one of the eight novels set between 1813 and 1827 dedicated too
them), this funny, witty, daring and clever
group must navigate the upper ten thousand’s marriage mart in search of
romance, adventure and love.
|The series is based on a series of books by Julia Quinn|
WHO ELSE IS IN THE CAST?
The rest of the Bridgerton clan includes Ruth Gemmell as matriarch Lady Violet; Jonathan Bailey as eldest child Anthony; Luke Thompson as sensitive Benedict; Luke Newton as charmer Colin; Claudia Jessie as
independent Eloise; and Ruby Stokes
as shy Francesca. The youngest siblings, Gregory and Hyacinth, are
still children when we first meet them and will be played by Will
Tilston and Florence Hunt, respectively. Polly Walker is Lady Portia Featherington, perhaps the most ambitious
mama of all,
determined to make advantageous matches for each of her
daughters – and is forever pushing them on some rather disinterested parties.
Cunning and ruthless, Lady Featherington hustles to get what she wants,
no matter the cost. Sabrina Bartlett, Ben Miller, Bessie Carter,
Lorraine Ashbourne and Martins Imhangbe also star.
|The designer has obviously gone overboard with the costumes|
|Yes, the queen of England is black in this one! |
