The Duchess (2020)
- DIRECTOR: Toby MacDonald
- WRITER: Katherine Ryan
- STARRING: Katherine Ryan, Rory Keenan, Steen Raskopoulos, Michelle de Swarte, Doon Mackichan, Katy Byrne, Sophie Fletcher
The Duchess is a 2020 British comedy-drama streaming television series created by and starring Katherine Ryan. It premiered on Netflix on September 11, 2020. Katherine’s a single mom juggling her career, her tween daughter, her relationship with her boyfriend — and pondering getting pregnant with her ex. Despite her Canadian roots, Katherine Ryan is probably better known in England than she is on this side of the Atlantic. But the glimpses we’ve seen of her on various series shows us a persona that’s brash and bawdy, but tries to be classy and fashionable at the same time. And if she’s going to play a mom on a show she created and wrote, she sure as heck will be different than the other parents dropping their kids off at school.

It includes an international crew: a Chinese chemist, a world famous British botanist with no experience in space, a Russian cosmonaut with the most experience in space, an Indian doctor who is the second in command and the American commander. Emma Green. Emma’s husband took astronaut training with her and could have commanded the mission without a health issue. The three-year mission starts from the Moon; however, several crew members did not trust Emma’s ability to command due to her response to a crisis situation early in the mission. The series is described as “about hope, humanity and how, ultimately, we need each other if we are to achieve impossible things”.
