Girls with money, men with power. New money, old secrets. A group of fun-loving young American girls explode into the tightly corseted London season of the 1870s, kicking off an Anglo-American culture clash as the land of the stiff upper lip is infiltrated by a refreshing disregard for centuries of tradition. Sent to secure husbands and titles, the buccaneers’ hearts are set on much more than that, and saying “I do” is just the beginning…
“The Buccaneers" stars Kristine Frøseth, as 'Nan St. George,' Alisha Boe as 'Conchita Closson,' Critics Choice Award nominee Josie Totah as 'Mabel Elmsworth,' Aubri Ibrag as 'Lizzy Elmsworth,' Imogen Waterhouse as 'Jinny St. George' and Mia Threapleton as 'Honoria Marable.'

Led by an all-female creative team, “The Buccaneers” is written by series creator Katherine Jakeways and directed by BAFTA Award winner Susanna White, who also serve as executive producers, alongside BAFTA Award nominee Beth Willis. The series is produced for Apple TV+ by The Forge Entertainment.
