The Duchess Season 1: Release Date

What is The Duchess Season 1 about?
The show stars Canadian actress and comedian Katherine Ryan, who also wrote the series and served as one of its executive producers. She is well known across the pond, hosting various UK comedy shows and panels, such as Comedy Central UK’s Roast Battle and Jimmy Carr with Your Face or Mine. The comedian already has two live stand-up specials on Netflix, Katherine Ryan: In Trouble (2017) and Katherine Ryan: Glitter Room (2019), so you may be familiar with her absurd understanding ahead of her show’s premiere.
The show is loosely based on Ryan’s life, she told, “The Duchess is super authentic about my personality, for my stage character, because she is a disruptive mother who is a bad person but a good mother. She is fashionable, she loves being a mother, she loves it. It is not sad, it is for me, yes.
The rest is fiction, but it’s an improved version for me, and I’m very lucky because they let me go and write what I really wanted, and me. I don’t think I would. Luckily with a traditional chain, I don’t think Give me the same freedom as Netflix, it’s going to be fun. All six episodes follow Katherine, a melodramatic single mother in London with an exaggerated sense of style, a unique relationship with her daughter, Olive, and a deep fear of commitment.
