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.

The series which is in development with Amazon Studios is expected to premiere on its Prime Video streaming service. Plus you can buy the book ahead of its release from bookshop.org or amazon.com.

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.

Phoebe Dynevor will also return to Bridgerton

Dynevor is also back to play Daphne in the second season of Netflix’s Bridgerton which is currently being filmed.

LGBT+ fans are hoping for more queer storylines in the second season after the first – which broke streaming records – lacked representation.

The Shonda Rhimes-produced series was accused of queerbaiting after it featured a gay sex scene in its trailer but failed to deliver in the characters and storylines.
