One time, Lorenzo caught Tom watching something on Netflix and asked him what it was. “It’s got Judi Dench in a bonnet,” he replied. “What more do you need to know?” Along those same lines, we just discovered that we are down for watching anything with Christina Hendricks in a corset.

Today Apple TV+ unveiled first-look images for “The Buccaneers,” the new eight-episode drama inspired by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edith Wharton’s unfinished final novel of the same name, from series creator Katherine Jakeways. “The Buccaneers” will make its global debut on Apple TV+ with the first three episodes on Wednesday, November 8, 2023, followed by new episodes weekly, every Wednesday through December 13.
Girls with money, men with power. New money, old secrets. A group of fun-loving young American girls explode into the tightly corseted London season of the 1870s, kicking off an Anglo-American culture clash as the land of the stiff upper lip is infiltrated by a refreshing disregard for centuries of tradition.
