The American comedy-drama was released on Netflix on February 24, 2021. The show is about a mother-daughter duo. Ginny Miller is the 15-year-old mature daughter of her 30-year-old mother, Georgia, who decides to settle down with her daughter and son in the town of New England to give them a better life.
The show casts Brianne Howey as Georgia Miller, 30-year-old single mother of Ginny and Austin, Antonia Gentry as Ginny Miller, Diesel La Torraca as Austin Miller, the 9-year-old son and Ginny’s half-brother.
Other main characters include Ellen, played by Jennifer Robertson, Felix Mallard as Marcus, Sara Waisglass as Maxine, and many more stars.
The filming of the show took place entirely in Toronto, Canada. Thankfully the production happened before the global pandemic, and the filming was not hindered by any delays. It began on August 14th, 2019, and ended on December 10th, 2019.
The show aired all ten episodes at the same time. The title of each episode is a dialogue that aptly reflects its summary. The show has some uncanny resemblance to the infamous Gilmore Girls, which can be heard in the trailer too.
Although mostly presented as a dramedy, the show is sprinkled with some deep and mysterious moments here and there. The family moves from Texas to start afresh after Georgia’s husband passes away. Still, soon Ginny realizes that there are many, many secrets that her mother has bottled up, including the real reason they had to shift, which Georgia is forced to reveal when her sister and her friend drop by at Wellsbury. Creator Sarah Lampert and executive producer Debra Fisher pile on the complexity as we learn Georgia has a more checkered past than she has let on to her kids.
The reviews so far for Ginny and Georgia season 1 seem a little mixed. Many argue that Georgia’s actions cannot be justified and that the script needs a complete rewrite. Antonio Gentry was highly praised for her portrayal of Ginny. Netflix also released a behind the scenes for the show on February 26th, Ginny & Georgia: The Afterparty, as a part of its specials.
The new age thriller engaged the audience with a mix of light comedy and several thrilling moments. According to several reviews, the episodes are addictive, and the audience is hoping for another exciting series.
