Apple TV+ have released the official Trailer for their upcoming period drama The Buccaneers. These American girls want to have fun in 1870s London, lock up your lords!
If there was any young American ladies invited to Bridgerton, this series might be the closest. If you are patiently awaiting that Netflix series, this eight part show might just fill the gap.
Amazingly this series is based on an unfinished book by Edith Wharton, enough source material to bring the book to the streaming world. Created by Katherine Jakeways, the series follows all American girls who head to London to find husbands and titles to match.
With a modern twist, Apple are hoping to match similar success to Bridgerton. Off course this series has tunes from the likes of Taylor Swift, Boygenius, Maggie Rogers, Bikini Kill, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Angel Olsen, Brandi Carlile and more…
Girls with money, men with power. New money, old secrets. A group of fun-loving young American girls explode into the tightly corseted London season of the 1870s, kicking off an Anglo-American culture clash as the land of the stiff upper lip is infiltrated by a refreshing disregard for centuries of tradition. Sent to secure husbands and titles, the buccaneers’ hearts are set on much more than that, and saying “I do” is just the beginning.
“The Buccaneers” stars Kristine Frøseth, as Nan St. George, Alisha Boe as Conchita Closson, Critics Choice Award nominee Josie Totah as Mabel Elmsworth, Aubri Ibrag as Lizzy Elmsworth, Imogen Waterhouse as Jinny St. George. SAG Award winner Christina Hendricks stars in the series as Mrs. St. George and Mia Threapleton stars as Honoria Marable, alongside an ensemble cast that also includes Josh Dylan as Lord Richard Marable, Guy Remmers as Theo, Duke of Tintagel, Matthew Broome as Guy Thwarte and Barney Fishwick as Lord James Seadown.
The Buccaneers will make its global debut on Apple TV+ with the first three episodes on Wednesday 8th November , followed by new episodes weekly, every Wednesday through 13th December.
