Disney+ Teases Vanderpump Villa

Disney+ today released the teaser for Vanderpump Villa, which is due in autumn.

The streamer promises decadence and debauchery will collide in the unscripted ‘docudrama’ about the staff of Lisa Vanderpump’s French estate, Chateau Rosabelle. Reads the blurb:

Each scintillating episode follows the elite staff as they try to provide luxurious, once-in-a-lifetime, Vanderpump-curated experiences for guests while dealing with rivalries, romances, and raucous misadventures that come from living and working together 24/7.

From firework-filled proposals and opulent events at the chateau to unbelievable excursions and outrageous confrontations in the French countryside, each day at the Chateau brings nonstop heartfelt, humorous, and heated moments, from staff and guests alike.

All the while, Lisa evaluates whether this is the team to make her “pop up” experience a permanent reality and add to her ever-growing empire. But will this unparalleled–yet unorthodox–crew be able to rise to the occasion and meet both the guests’ and Lisa’s great expectations?

Reports Variety: “Prior to the start of filming the 10-episode reality show, producers put out a casting call for restaurant professionals who wanted a role. Openings included head chef, mixologist, sous chef, line cook, housekeeper, fine dining server, event coordinator, event assistant and estate manager.

“Furthermore, the casting call said that hospitality crew is expected to ‘navigate every extravagant desire of their well-to-do guests in the French countryside,’ and candidates should have ‘television-ready charisma.’”

Disney+ today also posted the trailer for Death and Other Details, a 10-part modern twist on Agatha Christie mysteries, starring Violett Beane and Mandy Patinkin, that will land with two episodes on January 16 while Prime Video has released the trailer for Dance Life, a five-part docu-series about the Southern Hemisphere’s most prestigious dance academy, Brent Street, where Kiwi Jacob Yarr teaches.

In other streaming news: Apple TV+ has renewed humorous spy thriller Slow Horses for a fifth season (the first three can be streamed now) and period drama The Buccaneers for a second.

“It’s been a complete thrill to watch people all over the world fall in love with these characters, who’ve been brought to such vibrant life by our spectacular cast,” said Buccaneers creator Katherine Jakeways.

“We know season one left audiences desperate to know what’s next for our buccaneers, so I’m absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to explore the further adventures of this smart, joyful, messy sisterhood.”

Meanwhile, The Telegraph is picking Slow Horses star Jack Lowden (River Cartwright) as the next James Bond.

“Since the third season began last month, the bookies have further lowered Lowden’s odds – he now ranks among their top ten potential Bonds alongside Regé-Jean Page, Henry Cavill and James Norton …

Lowden would be terrific as Bond whatever the conception of the next iteration would be. It might be an idea, though, if the franchise were to adopt more of the wry comic tone of Slow Horses, in contrast to the dourness of the [Daniel] Craig years.”
