Shonda Rhimes to Take on Julia Quinn’s Bridgertons

Late last year, Shonda Rhimes (producer of TV hits like Grey’s AnatomyScandal, and How to Get Away with Murder) announced that she’d be taking her talents to Netflix. Well, now we have a better picture of what she’ll be working on for the streaming service.

The Hollywood Reporter has released a sneak peek at the eight projects currently lined up. Of course, all of them sound awesome, but most importantly, Rhimes will be adapting The Bridgertons.

Yes, those Bridgertons!

An untitled Bridgerton project. Based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling series of novels, the series is a feminist take on Regency England romance unveils the glittering, wealthy, sexual, painful, funny and sometimes lonely lives of the women and men in London’s high society marriage mart as told through the eyes of the powerful Bridgerton family. Scandal‘s Chris Van Dusen will adapt, exec produce and showrun the drama.

Julia Quinn has confirmed the news on her website and, if you want to hear more about Shonda’s plans for Netflix, The New York Times has a lengthy interview.

I am very curious to hear more. Do you think she’ll start with The Duke and I ( A | K | G | iB ) or just set the series in the “world” of the books?

Like everyone else, I am desperate for more information and I’m more than okay with Netflix trying to fill the TV/movie romance gap.

What do you think? Do you have faith in Shonda? Which Bridgerton book are you most excited to have adapted?
