Is modern dating life failing you? Do you long for a romance straight out of a Jane Austen novel? Did you binge-watch Bridgerton? Well, don your best Regency ball gown. It’s time to be transported to another era.

Peacock has announced Pride & Prejudice: An Experiment In Romance. The new reality dating series will transport a group of eligible suitors to Regency-style England in an attempt to “bring the ultimate romance back into dating.”

The setup sounds roughly like The Bachelorette but Austen-ified. According to Peacock, “A heroine looking for her duke will sign up for the ultimate social experiment in romance. Housed in a castle on the countryside, set on a beautiful backdrop of rolling hills, the heroine and suitors will experience that with which dreams are made of. From carriage rides and boat rides on the lake to archery and handwritten letters to communicate, they will be immersed in a time-traveling quest for love. In the end, our heroine and her suitors will discover if the ultimate romantic experience will find them true love.”

If this romantic experiment sounds right up your alley, we have some good news for you. Casting is currently underway for Pride & Prejudice: An Experiment In Romance. You can apply to appear as a contestant here.
