Regency House Party will air in Nov.
Regency House Party, which has already aired on the UK’s Channel 4, will come to the US on PBS this November. The series, set between 1811 and 1830, involves “a group of 10 modern-day men and women, all genuinely looking for love, (who) get a chance to go back in time.”It also “thrusts the group into the eternal battle of love versus money,” according to a PBS press release, which is possibly the first time PBS has ever used “thrusts” in a press release. The Alameda Times-Star comments that “the 10 ‘passion-filled hopefuls’ must work within the confines of the social protocols exemplified by Jane Austen’s characters. PBS seems to think if they just slap Jane Austen’s name on the project, it will give it some class.”
