EXCLUSIVE: Adjoa Andoh, who plays Lady Danbury in Netflix hit series Bridgerton, is moving into podcasting.

Andoh, who is also producing an adaptation of Island Queen with Bridgerton director Julie Anne Robinson, voices the role of Dr. Gwen Kingston, a determined and enthusiastic physician who, after discovering that her advanced Alzheimer’s patient has made a miraculous recovery, follows a line of inquiry that brings her to the small town of Cruxmont.

The series, which will feature 14 episodes, will launch on March 29.
Founded by husband-and-wife duo Travis Vengroff who produces and edits and Kaitlin Statz who writes, Fool & Scholar Productions is also responsible for series including The White Vault and VAST Horizon.
