The new Apple TV+ series “The Buccaneers” may take place in the 1870s, but the soundtrack is downright modern.
Adapted from Edith Wharton’s unfinished novel, “The Buccaneers” centers on young American women descended from old English society who are making waves in both America and England. Kristine Froseth plays Annabelle “Nan” St. George, the central character who finds herself caught in a love triangle between two very different men — Guy Thwarte (Matthew Broome) and Theo (Guy Remmers) who is a Duke. Marriage is the last thing on Nan’s mind until she meets first Guy, and then Theo.
Other ensemble stars include Alisha Boe as Conchitta Closson, Imogen Waterhouse as Virginia “Jinny” St. George, Josie Totah as Mabel Elmsworth and Aubri Ibrag as Lizzy Elmsworth. The St. Georges face pressure from their mother (Christina Hendricks) to find husbands wealthy enough to take care of them once they marry. This leads the girls to England to visit acquaintances they make in high New York society thanks to Conchitta’s husband Lord Richard Marable (Josh Dylan) who hails originally from the United Kingdom.
Music takes on a role of its own in the series as it bridges the gap between stuffy England and rowdy new American customs. From Taylor Swift to Brandi Carlisle, the show packs a punch from powerful female musicians and songwriters, with a sassy and catchy opening song called “North American Scum” by Emily Kokal (feat. Miya Frolick).
