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

Along with that, 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 who happens to be 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, as well as William Davies both, are 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 named 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.
