New Shondaland Murder-Mystery Drama “The Residence” Ordered To Series At Netflix
Netflix announced a series order for Shondaland’s The Residence, a thrilling murder-mystery drama from Showrunner/Executive Producer Paul William Davies and Executive Producers Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers as part of their overall deal with Netflix.
Using Kate Andersen Brower’s book The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House as a jumping off point, Paul William Davies has created an all new story that brings to life a murder-mystery unlike any other. Here’s a brief synopsis of the series:
132 rooms. 157 suspects. One dead body. One wildly eccentric detective. One disastrous State Dinner. The Residence is a screwball whodunnit set in the upstairs, downstairs, and backstairs of the White House, among the eclectic staff of the world’s most famous mansion.
The drama will feature 8 episodes with Shona Rhimes serving as an EP and Betsy Beers.
The project stems from Paul William Davies’ multi-year overall deal with Netflix.
