The new series is the first Shondaland series to be released exclusively on Netflix as part of producer Shonda Rhimes‘ deal with the streaming service. It has been described as a mix between Downton Abbey and Gossip Girl.
Julie is featured as the voice of Lady Whistledown, who writes a high society scandal sheet that casts aspersions on leading lady Daphne Bridgerton. She’s basically Gossip Girl!
Click inside to find out the word that she says…
Right near the beginning of the first episode, we get to hear Julie say the word “bitches” in her magnificent voice and it sets the stage for the type of show you can expect!
“It has been said that of all bitches, dead or alive, a scribbly woman is most canine. If that should be true, then this author would like to show you her teeth. My name is Lady Whistledown, but you do not know me and rest assured you never shall, but be forewarned dear reader, I certainly know you,” Julie‘s character says while introducing herself to readers, and the audience.

Good Christmas morning my wonderful Twitter people.
Okay Romancelandia, I'm watching #Bridgerton and I have some initial thoughts:
1. Julie Andrews as the voice of Lady Whistledown is inspired.
2. Costumes and settings are GORGEOUS! This series looks pretty.

Dame Julie Andrews is to Lady Whistledown as Kristen Bell is to Gossip Girl. Absolute perfection.
