NBC’s new dating series now has an official name. It will be called Court. It will air in early March and will be available on the Peacock streaming service.
The show seems to be inspired by the hugely popular series, Bridgerton. The Courtship was originally called Pride & Prejudice: Experimenting in Love. New name, Court, quite attractive and independent.
What is the dating series about? NBC shared what we know in a Press Release this week.
“A heroine looking for her duke will sign up for the ultimate social experiment in romance,” the network said.
“Shipped to Regency-style England, a group of qualified hopefuls will have to win the heart of our heroine and her court. Set in a castle in the countryside, set against a backdrop of beautiful rolling hills, the heroine and her suitors will experience that dreams come true. From horseback riding and lake boating to archery and handwriting to communicate, they’ll be immersed in a time travel journey in search of love. Ultimately, our heroine and her suitors will discover whether the romantic experience ultimately finds their true love.”
NBC never mentioned Bridgerton, but it’s clear that the series is using the popularity of Netflix series to its advantage. Although since it’s not “directly” related to BridergetonFans of regent-inspired romances might be interested in watching, even if they’ve never watched Bridgerton.
Court will premiere on Sunday, March 6 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Each episode will air at that time slot each week, available the next day on Peacock.
