Bridgerton breakout Phoebe Dynevor to star in fiery queer love triangle series
Bridgerton’s Phoebe Dynevor is set to star in a queer love triangle series for Amazon.
The breakout star of Netflix’s Regency-era romance will appear in the television adaption of novel Exciting Times.
Dynevor is confirmed to executive produce the series and is also attached to star in it, according to Deadline.
The series is based on the novel of the same name by Irish author Naoise Dolan, who will co-write the adaption.
The story follows 22-year-old Irish woman Ava – set to be played by Phoebe Dynevor – who takes a job teaching English grammar in Hong Kong to rich children.
But while there she soon finds herself entangled with two lovers who are very, very rich – who hasn’t been there?
The first is Julian, a British banker with the ‘right’ upbringing and the ‘right’ amount of commas in his paycheque and the second is Edith, who actually listens to Ava when she talks.
Edith is also a high-powered lawyer and the daughter of a powerful Hong Kong family who she hasn’t come out to yet.
The novel, set in the mid-2010s, explores themes of love, money and cultural clashes as well as Ava’s strained relationship with how she presents herself on social media.
It follows a number of big announcements from Amazon who are upping their streaming game including a TV reboot of I Know What You Did Last Summer, an Emily Blunt-fronted film about the first female detective and the exclusive release of the Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
