Read my spoiler-free movie review of Bridgerton (2020).
Created by Chris Van Dusen; Bridgerton is a new Netflix series set in Regency era England. A tale of wealth, lust, and betrayal as seen through the eyes of the powerful Bridgerton family.
Produced by Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder production company, Shonda Rhymes’s Shondaland, Bridgerton stars Phoebe Dynevor, Regé-Jean Page, Julie Andrews, Jonathan Bailey
I’d just got in from a much needed run, did the required warm down and was about to head towards the shower when a thought came to me: ‘Let me, let me just check what new trailers have been released.’.
The colours, the music, characters, costume and trailer edit all had me paying close attention trying to understand what this could be. It wasn’t until I saw ‘Shondaland’ that a very high pitched, gleeful sound escaped my lips, while I simultaneously brought my hands together clapping rapidly as the broadest smile took over my face.
In case it wasn’t clear, I’m super excited for Bridgerton for all the reasons above, but especially because it comes from Shondaland, a company that’s blessed so many fans with the likes of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder.
I’d been patiently waiting for the first show that would result from the very lucrative Rhymes/ Shodaland and Netflix deal. Finally!
Adjoa Andoh, Ruby Barker, Jason Barnett, Sabrina Bartlett, Joanna Bobin, Harriet Cains, Bessie Carter, Nicola Coughlan, Kathryn Drysdale, and Golda Rosheuvel also star.
