The official companion to Netflix's record-breaking phenomenon Bridgerton - the seductive drama from producer Shonda Rhimes, based on Julia Quinn's bestselling romance series.
A riveting, rollicking, and super-smart look at the cultural phenomenon that is Bridgerton, the Emmy-nominated series, from inception through adaptation and covering all facets in between.
With the whip-smart voice of Shondaland partners Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers to guide readers through decisions small and large, including: how and why to adapt the bestselling romance novels by Julia Quinn; the importance and verisimilitude of multi-cultural casting; and the exquisite world-building via the costumes, set design, and deep historical dive into the Regency era. OFFICIAL UNTITLED ON BRIDGERTON not only brings the Emmy Award nominated series to life with intimate interviews with the cast, crew and series author Julia Quinn; but brings history to life with insights from the show's on-set historian Dr Hannah Grieg.
The book is cast through the lens of the Bridgerton women and their struggle to survive and thrive in an era when they were valued as chits in the game of (male only) landownership. Yet from Queen Charlotte to Lady Danbury to Lady Whistledown, the game was played brilliantly by more than a few. This is what Shonda and Betsy Beers passionately wanted to convey through interviews with cast and crew, photographs, essays and annotations on the scripts. The book offers delicious insight into the characters that delighted viewers and more fulsome historical context including:
Bridgerton and the World of Regency London
Bridgerton and Race
Bridgerton and Gender/Marriage
Bridgerton and Sex
Bridgerton and Class
Bridgerton and Family dynamics
With three more seasons signed and a spin off for Lady Charlotte, this authoritative, authorised and declarative OFFICIAL UNTITLED ON BRIDGERTON will be a must-buy for fans and a perfect gift for all seasons.
