The Buccaneers Plot and Synopsis
The Buccaneers is set in the 1870s when a group of rich young American women travels to England in search of husbands and titles. The British press refers to them as “buccaneers” because they are viewed as invaders who pillage the nobility.
However, when they experience many problems and conflicts in their personal and social lives, they quickly realize that money and position are insufficient to ensure happiness. In the framework of the Gilded Age, the series examines topics such as class, gender, love, marriage, ambition, and identity.

The Buccaneers Creator and Source Material
Katherine Jakeways, a British writer and actor who has worked on productions such as Back to Life, Hold the Sunset, and Tracey Ullman’s Show, wrote The Buccaneers. She wrote each of the eight episodes of the series, which is based on Edith Wharton’s unfinished novel of the same name.
Wharton was an American novelist best known for her works The Age of Innocence, The House of Mirth, and Ethan Frome. She began writing The Buccaneers in 1934 but died before finishing it in 1937. Wharton’s friend Marion Mainwaring wrote the finale, which was published posthumously in 1938.
The novel was previously adapted into a miniseries by the BBC in 1995, starring Carla Gugino, Mira Sorvino, Alison Elliott, Rya Kihlstedt, Cherie Lunghi, Greg Wise, James Frain, Mark Tandy, Ronan Vibert, Jenny Agutter, Michael Kitchen, Rosemary Leach, Sheila Hancock, Dinsdale Landen, Connie Booth, Richard Huw, John McEnery, Peter Jeffrey, and Gwen Humble.
