- Two new stars are said to have signed on for Apple TV+ show The Buccaneers.
- Kristine Froseth and Alisha Boe are now part of the project.
- The Buccaneers is already filming in Scotland but no release date has been given.
Kristine Froseth and Alisha Boe have reportedly signed to star in an adaptation of Edith Warton's novel, The Buccaneers for Apple TV+.
Katherine Jakeways is responsible for writing the show which Variety says "tells the story of a bunch of rich American girls in the 1870s setting out to find a posh English husband during the London debutante season – and the ensuing marriages that aren't all they seem."
Froseth will play Nan St George while Boe is set to play Conchita Closson, according to the report.
Others set to star include Josie Totah of Saved by the Bell fame.
Susanna White is set to direct, with production already underway in Scotland. Both Jakeways and White will executive produce the new series, with Beth Willis and George Faber also involved in the project. The report says that The Forge Entertainment will be producing the show for Apple TV+.
As great as that sounds, we still don't have any idea of when we will be able to watch the show. We do know that an Apple TV+ subscription is set to be required, however. Those with an Apple One subscription will also be good to go, too.
