NBC embarks on the ultimate fantasy with new dating series “The Courtship,” premiering Sunday, March 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The series will stream on Peacock the day following its NBC telecast.
Leading lady Nicole Remy, a modern girl tired of modern dating, is transported back to Regency-era England in the hope of finding love. In a grand 19th century castle set among the rolling hills of the English countryside, a group of 16 eligible suitors must battle to win her heart. Writer and broadcaster Rick Edwards hosts and guides them on their journey, complete with surprise guests along the way.
From carriage rides and masquerade balls, to archery, fencing and handwritten letters, Nicole and her pursuers swap modern-day sensibilities for grand-courting gestures of the past. Leaving the modern world behind presents its fair share of challenges for Nicole’s hopeful admirers, and the pressure builds when they discover that they must also get the seal of approval from her trusted Court: her father, Claude; her mother, Claire; her sister, Danielle; and best friend, Tessa. As Nicole’s advisors, the Court chooses dates for her and helps uncover which suitors deserve to win her heart. As each attempts to out-romance the other, suitors find themselves at a weekly farewell ball where Nicole reveals whether their journey in romance continues or their carriage awaits to return them to the modern world. As the competition heats up and chivalry and courtship are put to the test, Nicole and her suitors discover if this sweeping adventure in romance leads them to true love.
