PREMIUM SPOTLIGHT ON 'THE CROWN' QUEEN ELIZABETH II TV SERIES WITH LAVISH 'VANITY FAIR' CAST PHOTOSHOOT WITH CLAIRE FOY, JOHN LITHGOW, MATT SMITH

'THE CROWN' EPIC SAGA
ON QUEEN ELIZABETH II
While you are currently enjoying royal shenanigans every Sunday night in Victoria over at ITV, don't think that is about all we're getting from them crowned brats this year. Ten part, $150 million worth period set drama THE CROWN will start airing at Netflix November 4th set at a time when Britain was recovering from war and her empire was in decline, and following a young woman who took the throne as a matter of duty not desire.


NETFLIX' 'THE CROWN'
 focuses on the reigning Queen Elizabeth II as a 25 year old newlywed faced with the daunting prospect of leading the world's most famous monarchy while forging a relationship with legendary Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill. The British Empire is in decline, the political world is in disarray, and a young woman takes the throne ... a new era is dawning. Peter Morgan's masterfully researched scripts reveal the Queen's private journey behind the public facade with daring frankness. Prepare to be welcomed into the coveted world of power and privilege and behind locked doors in Westminster and Buckingham Palace ... the leaders of an empire await.

THE MOST EXPENSIVE SERIES EVER FROM NETFLIX
The most expensive drama ever made by the U.S. streaming company and its first to be made in the UK, will trace the life of Queen Elizabeth II from her wedding in 1947 to the present day. It is expected to span 60 episodes over 6 seasons, with always unconvincing Claire Foy playing the Queen in the early part of her reign. Matt Smith plays her husband prince Philip, Jared Harris is King George VI, Vanessa Kirby will play queen's sister princess Margaret. John Lithgow will be British prime minister Winston Churchill, with Greg Wise portraying Lord Mountbatten. Jeremy Northam and Ben Miles also star. Oscar winner Stephen Daldry is directing some of the episodes!

    1. I'm surprised Germany hasn't come up with some big English lg series on some of your monarchs, especially after France doing VERSAILLES, Italy MASTERS OF FLORENCE and Russia CATHERINE THE GREAT

  4. Everyone's got a thing for royals, even Americans who hate the very idea. I wonder if the Queen herself will approve of how they show it.

  8. Queen Elizabeth has reigned for a long long time. This could be a lengthy miniseries.
