The highly-anticipated Disney+ comedy-drama series, Rivals, has unveiled its trailer, offering a glimpse into the extravagant and scandalous world of the elite in 1980s England. Based on the books by best-selling author Dame Jilly Cooper, the eight-part series promises a raunchy and eye-popping portrayal of the characters’ antics in the fictional county of Rutshire.

The star-studded cast includes British TV favorites such as Danny Dyer from EastEnders, Emily Atack from The Inbetweeners, and Skins heartthrob Luke Pasqualino. Additionally, acting legend David Tennant plays the character Tony, engaged in a fierce rivalry with Rupert, portrayed by Alex Hassell.

While Disney+ has not yet announced the release date, excitement is already building around the series. The synopsis teases a power struggle between the charismatic Rupert Campbell-Black and the ambitious Lord Tony Baddingham, set against a backdrop of drama and excess in 1980s England’s social elite.

The show’s trailer hints at a series filled with scandal and sensuality, featuring suggestive moments that promise to captivate viewers. Notably, the series is set to include steamy scenes, with Emily Atack set to strip off for a naked tennis match and intimate encounters with A-list actors.

Rivals has garnered attention for its bold approach to intimacy on screen, reportedly involving a significant number of intimacy coordinators to ensure authenticity in the romp-fueled narrative. Fans of the original novel can expect a treat as the adaptation brings the characters and their scandalous escapades to life in vivid detail.

With promises of sex, scandal, and rivalry, Rivals is poised to be a must-watch series when it debuts on Disney+ later this year. Stay tuned for more updates on this raucous and captivating portrayal of elite life in 1980s England.
