WRITER-PRODUCER CHRIS VAN DUSEN SIGNS SERIES OVERALL DEAL WITH NETFLIX

His first project will be Shondaland's Untitled Bridgerton Project

Hollywood, Calif. - October 29, 2018 -- Writer-producer Chris Van Dusen has signed a brand new, multi-year series overall deal with Netflix.

Under the terms of the agreement, Van Dusen will create new series and other projects for the streaming platform. His first will be Shondaland's Untitled Bridgerton Project, a one-hour drama ordered straight-to-series, based on Julia Quinn's best-selling novels. Van Dusen will adapt, showrun, and executive produce, along with Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers through Shondaland.

This smart feminist take on Regency England romance unveils the glittering, wealthy, sexual, painful, funny and sometimes lonely lives of the women and men in London's high society marriage mart as told through the eyes of the powerful Bridgerton family.

"I couldn't be more excited about being a part of the creative powerhouse that is Shondaland at Netflix," said Van Dusen. "Bringing these irresistible books by Julia Quinn to the screen, with the fearless and talented team of storytellers I've been so fortunate to have worked alongside for so long, is a dream come true. I am grateful to have a home at Netflix, whose commitment to innovative, groundbreaking storytelling is unmatched."

Van Dusen most recently served as co-executive producer on SCANDAL. A homegrown Shondaland talent, Van Dusen landed his first writing gig on GREY'S ANATOMY. He is a graduate of Emory University and USC's Peter Stark Producing Program.
