A WAR has broken out between Netflix’s two top dramas over set locations.
Netflix shows The Crown and Bridgerton are at war over filming locations (pictured Emma Corrin as Princess Diana in The Crown)
But the length of shoots — expected to block out 2021 — mean both shows must carefully plan to avoid clashing.
Failing that, bosses of the streaming giant might have to decide which takes precedence.
A source said: “Given these two feature similar backdrops, it was only time before they ended up treading on the other’s toes.
“It’s down to production companies when they film.
Both shows are desperate to film at the same stately homes (pictured Phoebe Dynevor in Bridgerton)

“But Netflix will be keen everything is sorted as the last thing anyone needs are more delays.”
The 18th century Somerley Estate in Hampshire featured in the fourth series of The Crown — which stars Emma Corrin as Diana — standing in for royal residence Highgrove.
But the country house also doubled as Somerset House in Bridgerton, which stars Phoebe Dynevor.

The source added: “There are only so many stately homes that work for filming.
“It’s a real headache.”
