The BBC aired the historical British drama A Very British Scandal last year, and now Prime Video is bringing the series to a worldwide audience. Fans in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand will be able to view A Very British Scandal on Prime video starting April 22nd, according to a new teaser published today.
The Duke and Duchess of Argyll are played by Emmy-nominee Paul Bettany and Emmy-winner Claire Foy in A Very British Scandal. The miniseries follows the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire as they go through a divorce that becomes one of the most famous and sensational judicial cases in 1960s Britain.
We see the pair enjoying the opulent lifestyle that comes with being a Duke and Duchess in the teaser, but tensions between them are increasing discreetly. The Duke is shown drinking heavily and being nasty to the Duchess in the teaser. In addition, the trailer implies that the couple’s finances are running out. The Duke taunts her about having proof against her while she has none against him in a scenario when the Duke and Duchess accuse each other of adultery. As the video progresses, we witness snippets of the Duchess’s public image deteriorating as reporters pursue her.
Sarah Phelps wrote and conceived the miniseries, while Anne Sewitsky directed all three episodes. Dublin Murders and The ABC Murders are two of Phelps’ https://www.wcihs.org/xanax-site/ prior works. Sewitsky, on the other hand, has directed episodes of programs like Black Mirror and Castle Rock. A Very British Scandal is a follow-up to A Very English Scandal, which premiered in 2018 and chronicled the narrative of a 1970s British political and sex scandal. Blueprint, the production firm behind both shows, is responsible for both. Prime Video presently has A Very British Scandal accessible to watch.
A Very British Scandal will be available on Prime Video on April 22. Below is the trailer for the miniseries, as well as the whole synopsis:
Margaret, Duchess of Argyll, was recognized for her personal character, elegance, and grace, and she dominated the front pages of the newspapers as a divorce involving allegations of forgery, thievery, violent behaviour, drug use, secret recording, corruption, and an obscene Polaroid photo played out in the spotlight of the 1960s media.
A Very British Scandal examines the social and political milieu of postwar Britain, with a focus on attitudes toward women and the question of whether institutional sexism was pervasive at the time. Margaret maintained her head held high with bravery and resilience while her peers, the press, and the judiciary worked to demonize her. She refused to go quietly as she was betrayed by her friends and publically disgraced by a society that rejoiced in her fall from grace.
