The series will be called Pride & Prejudice: An Experiment in Romance, and will follow “a heroine looking for her duke”.
The streaming service confirmed the news in a Lady Whistledown style network announcement, which read: “Peacock has announced that it will embark on a venture in romance this social season.”
“An as-yet-unknown heroine search for love will be chosen to be part of a ground breaking social experiment to find her faithful duke.”
“Hopeful suitors are invited to a land fit for a princess, with the prospect that one will earn the admiration of our fair maiden.”

A description of the new show reads: “Transported to a Regency-style England, a group of eligible hopeful suitors will have to win the heart of the heroine, and her court.”
“Housed in a castle on the countryside, set on a beautiful backdrop of rolling hills, the heroine and suitors will experience that with which dreams are made of.”
