Netflix has ordered two female-led drama series based on two best selling series of romance novels: “Virgin River” by Robyn Carr and “The Sweet Magnolias” by Sherryl Woods.
Virgin River – 10 episodes
Melinda Monroe answers an ad to work as a nurse practitioner in the remote California town of Virgin River thinking it will be the perfect place to start fresh and leave her painful memories behind. But she soon discovers that small-town living isn’t quite as simple as she expected and that she must learn to heal herself before she can truly make Virgin River her home.
Sweet Magnolias – 10 episodes
Sweet Magnolias centers on three South Carolina women, best friends since high school, as they shepherd each other through the complexities of romance, career, and family.
