Julie Andrews to Voice Lady Whistledown in Netflix & Shondaland's Bridgerton Series



Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, Aquaman, The Princess Diaries) has been cast to voice the pivotal character of Lady Whistledown in the upcoming Netflix and Shondaland series based on the Bridgerton series.

The series is expected to premiere in 2020.

The eight-episode hourlong period drama was created by Chris Van Dusen (Scandal). Van Dusen executive produces with Shondaland's Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers. The Bridgerton series is one of eight series ordered by Netflix from Shondaland.

Based on Julia Quinn's best-selling series of novels, BRIDGERTON, is set in the sexy, lavish and competitive world of Regency London high society. From the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair to the aristocratic palaces of Park Lane and beyond, the series unveils a seductive, sumptuous world replete with intricate rules and dramatic power struggles, where no one is truly ever on steady ground. At the heart of the show is the powerful Bridgerton family. Comprised of eight close-knit siblings, this funny, witty, daring and clever group must navigate the upper ten thousand's marriage mart in search of romance, adventure and love.

Julie Andrews will lend her voice to the character of Lady Whistledown. Anonymous to readers, this mysterious, sharp-tongued gossip writer uses a curious mix of social commentary and scathing insult to send the season of 1813's ton into an all-out frenzy.
