DESCRIPTION:
(from Starz's press release, May 2021) STARZ announced today that Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures, "Ratched") and Nicholas Denton ("Glitch," Pillars) will portray the notorious lovers Merteuil and Valmont in the new STARZ Original series "Dangerous Liaisons." "Dangerous Liaisons" is a bold reimagining of the iconic characters from Laclos' classic 18th century novel and tells the origin story of how the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont meet as passionate young lovers in Paris on the eve of revolution. Driven to right the wrongs of their past, we follow the couple as they rise from the slums of Paris and scale the heights of the French aristocracy, seducing and manipulating both the nobility and each other to survive. Englert stars as Camille, a beautiful young woman from nowhere with a mysterious past who seeks revenge on the wealthy aristocrats who led her to ruin. Betrayed by her lover, Valmont, she turns heartbreak into empowerment as she strategizes to gain status, power and freedom. Denton plays her lover Pascal Valmont, driven to regain the title and status stolen from him by his stepmother after his father's death. Without status or money, he must seduce and blackmail to get what he wants, even if it risks losing the one he loves most - Camille. At its core, "Dangerous Liaisons" is the story of a young woman who negotiates love, sex, class and power to navigate an oppressive, unjust establishment on the brink of collapse.
