Do you like wine, charming British accents, and handsome Hollywood actors? Rejoice, because Matthew Rhys (The Americans) and Matthew Goode (Downton Abbey, The Good Wife) have a new TV series about wine and it looks pretty delightful.
Called simply The Wine Show, the 13-episode one-hour series will chronicle the adventures of the Matthews as they luxuriate in a picture-perfect Italian sipping crisp Chardonnays and having a laugh, or so it appears.
"You might wonder what two actors are doing on a show about wine," Rhys says in the trailer. Indeed, it seems neither he nor Goode are particularly advanced oenophiles, but that's what makes this show so appealing: It's just two normal — okay, slightly better-looking than average — guys learning about wine, with the bonus of some pretty majestic landscape backdrops. (Don't worry, they'll also be calling in a team of experts to say smart stuff about grapes.)
The Wine Show premieres this spring on UK network ITV; the rest of us will just have to pray it makes it to YouTube.
