What is ‘Bridgerton’ about?
When Bridgerton opens, it’s the beginning of the social season in London. During her premiere to the social scene, Daphne Bridgerton is named the Diamond of the Season, which makes every eligible man in London line up at her door to court her. Unfortunately for Daphne, her oldest brother Anthony scares them all away. Left with little to no suitable options for a husband, Daphne strikes a deal with Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings. The two pretend to be courting in order to make other men desire Daphne once again and make it look like Simon is off of the market.
Throughout the course of their charade, the two fall in and out of love with one another several times. Meanwhile, the other members of the Ton are hiding scandals of their own and the new town gossip Lady Whistledown is around to report every last one.
If you’re missing seeing the lovely face of the Duke, you can find Regé-Jean Page on Sylvie’s Love, where he plays Chico Sweetney, one of the members of the quartet.
