American Princess is a comedy-drama television series that premiered on the Lifetime network in June 2019. The show follows the journey of Amanda Klein, played by Georgia Flood, a New York socialite who gets jilted at the altar by her fiancé just before her dream wedding. In a state of panic, Amanda runs away from her wedding and ends up getting lost in the woods. She stumbles upon a renaissance festival, and decides to join the eclectic group of people who have made the festival their home.

At the festival, Amanda takes on the role of a noblewoman and begins to embrace the fantasy world that she has stumbled upon. The series is set against the backdrop of the challenging world of renaissance fairs, as Amanda struggles to fit in with her new colleagues while trying to reconnect with her authentic self.

The cast includes a number of interesting and dynamic characters. Lucas Neff plays David, the owner of the festival who is struggling to keep it afloat while also dealing with a difficult divorce from his ex-wife, Maggie (Seana Kofoed). Rory O'Malley plays Brian, a member of the festival who is in love with David and has ambitions to become a professional wrestler. Mary Hollis Inboden plays Delilah, a member of the festival who takes Amanda under her wing when she first arrives.

The show has been praised for its witty writing and its ability to make viewers care about the often-overlooked world of renaissance fairs. The series also delves into important themes such as self-discovery, family dynamics, and the nature of true love. It showcases the diverse personalities who flock to these events and the intricate community and family dynamics that underpin the people who make the festival their home.

Throughout the first season, Amanda's presence in the festival leads to a lot of unexpected twists and turns. Her journey of self-discovery is front and center, as she grapples with the notion of authenticity and how to be true to herself while belonging to a tight-knit community. The show delves into her relationships with both her old life in New York City and her new life in the festival, and as the season progresses, viewers are introduced to a number of different and compelling characters.

The series' writing is innovative and engaging, with the storyline never feeling predictable. The unique setting of the renaissance festival allows for some interesting and quirky plotlines to be developed, and the writing team has done an excellent job of showcasing the humor and heart within the world of these fairs. For anyone who has ever been to a renaissance festival themselves, the show offers a wonderful glimpse into the complex and fascinating world that they inhabit.

Overall, American Princess is a witty, warm-hearted, and entertaining series that is well worth a watch.
