Duncan Watkinson appears in new Netflix / Shondaland series Bridgerton, available now.
Bridgerton will mark one of television juggernaut Shonda Rhimes’ first projects with the streaming service after signing an epic eight-show deal with Netflix in 2017. It’s also a huge step forward for romance publishing’s representation in pop culture being one of the first mass-market romance novels to be adapted to the screen.
Bridgerton will be an eight-episode hourlong series set in Regency London’s high society. Focusing on the Bridgerton family and their eight tight-knit siblings, the romance centres on the siblings’ attempts to navigate the perils of the cutthroat marriage market, from the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair to the aristocratic palaces of Park Lane.
