Now that Squid Game is over… What’s next?
Singapore Writers Festival 2021 will feature a host of Netflix series Queer Eye, Tan France and writers such as Julia Quinn, creator of the addictive Bridgerton series; Elizabeth Gilbert, bestselling author of the memoir Eat, Pray, Love, and more, whose books have all found its way to Netflix one way or another.

The drama takes place in Regency-era London in 1813, centering on the aristocratic Bridgerton family. The widow Violet, Dowager Viscountess Bridgerton is mother to eight children: her four sons, Anthony, Benedict, Colin, and Gregory, and her four daughters, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, and Hyacinth. Each episode is narrated by actress Julie Andrews, who voices the anonymous and ever-scandalous newsletter columnist known as Lady Whistledown. Lady Whistledown knows all the information in London, and everyone focuses on Lady Whistledown’s article, even Queen Charlotte.
