Another Project from Shondaland

A popular writer and many additional writers write the series. The Residence is said to be an upcoming record-breaking project from Shonda Rhimes. Because whenever she is up to something, it is bound to make its mark in television history.

That has happened not once or twice but multiple times. Look at her previous projects: Grey’s Anatomy, Inventing Anna, Bridgerton, and now the Bridgerton sequel. 


Grey’s Anatomy

Grey’s Anatomy has become the longest-running medical drama, with more than millions of fans across the world. It is all set to premiere its 19th season in the upcoming weeks.

Additionally, Inventing Anna has been a record-breaking series on Netflix and is still on the most-watched list.


Talking about Bridgerton, it has been most favorite scripted show, and after teaming up with Netflix, it got even more recognition. Since the release of the show, it needed not one but multiple sequel seasons.

Additionally, just after the first season, there were talks about multiple spin-off series of Bridgerton. And that’s not all; we are now getting a Bridgerton sequel, i.e., Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story. 

The Residence: Writer

Paul William Davies, one of the leading writers, will be writing the script for The Residence. He is, shockingly, an attorney-turned-screenwriter and has been writing amazing screenplays. 


He is not just the writer but also a showrunner along with Shonda Rhimes. You might be familiar with his other popular and appreciatable works such as Betrayal, Scandal, For the People, and many more. 

Partnership with Netflix

Shonda Rhimes and William Davies are both under a partnership with Netflix, under which all such dream projects are coming to life. The deal was in 2018 when they purchased The Residence rights for the series. 

The Residence: Based on Book 

The series is based on Kate Andersen Brower’s Book The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House. However, the series will be inspired by the book itself, not exactly based on the book. 

The official synopsis is quite interesting and thrilling. As it explains the story of the series, it gives a kind of chills. Let’s get right into it. 

The Residence Storyline – Spoilers Ahead

The series is about a murder in the world’s most famous “Residence”, i.e., The White House itself. There were 132 rooms and 157 suspects on the premises around the time of the death. 

Then there is one body, the person murdered in the most secure building ever. And, now, when there’s a murder, there has to be a detective. To get everything sorted out and get to know the real murderer.

A state dinner was attended by so many high-profile members of various countries and more. There are so many rooms, storage units, secret rooms, and whatnot, and now there’s the murder.

It will be quite exciting to see how the story comes out. Because when you are in the most secure building and surrounded by the most prestigious people from around the globe, and then a murder takes place, that is something to be worried about. 

The Residence Cast Members

As we discussed earlier, the series is still undergoing various stages for screenplay and writing. Hence there are no cast members finalized for the series. The show’s makers will soon be hiring various actors for different roles.

They will be getting screen testing/ auditions, and then whoever is suited the best will be called for the finalized role. 

Also, there is a high chance that the series will get some most popular actors from the television industry.
