The world of yesteryear emerges front and center with the premiere of Lifetime’s new scripted dramedy, “American Princess” on Sunday, June 2 at 9 pm ET/PT. From A+E Studios, creator Jamie Denbo and executive producers Jenji Kohan, Tara Herrmann and Mark A. Burley, the series follows runaway bride Amanda Klein (Aussie newcomer Georgia Flood, “Anzac Girls,” “Wentworth”) as she joins a Renaissance Faire after her wedding goes awry, only to discover there’s a lot more to life than she once thought.
When Amanda (Flood), an Upper East Side socialite, runs away from her own dream wedding, she realizes that the life she thought she wanted wasn’t actually right after all. After impulsively joining a Renaissance Faire, Amanda experiences an unexpected awakening that leads her to reevaluate everything she thought she knew about the pursuit of happiness. She quickly develops new friendships, rivalries and romances that, much to the confusion of her family, opens her eyes to new beginnings.
Lucas Neff (“Raising Hope”) stars as David, Amanda’s love interest and Ren Faire actor who goes by the name Pizzle Humpsalot, performing Shakespearean parodies in the mud; Seana Kofoed (“Men in Trees,” “Flaked”) plays Maggie, the venerable Queen Elizabeth at the Faire; Mary Hollis Inboden (“The Real O’Neals,” “Here And Now”) plays Delilah, a free-spirited washer wench who becomes Amanda’s new best friend; and Rory O’Malley (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” “Hamilton”) as Brian, Maggie’s confidant and the Faire’s beloved Shakespeare.
Guest stars include Jamie Denbo, Lesley Ann Warren, Matt Peters, Lucas Hazlett, Sophie Von Haselberg, Matt Ehrich, Natasha Leggero, Steve Agee, Tommy Dorfman, Fortune Feimster, and John Ross Bowie.
“American Princess” is an A+E Studios production in association with Tilted Productions and is created, written and executive produced by Denbo (“Ronna & Beverly”). Kohan (“Orange is the New Black,” “Weeds,” “GLOW”), Herrmann (“Orange is the New Black,” “GLOW”) and Mark A. Burley (“Orange is the New Black,” “Weeds,” “GLOW”) also executive produce the ten one-hour episodes.
