If you thought they were all about ‘Keeping Up’ with some of the world’s biggest Reality TV shows then you wouldn't be alone. However E! have launched one heck of a curveball with their latest production, this time the drama isn’t over which direction Kim should name her next born child (obviously South…) or how much Dorothy would spend on a ‘Breakup Birkin’, this time, it’s scripted and ever so regal.
This Wednesday see’s The Royals take centre stage on E! as a 2 season deal has been signed for this 10-episode original scripted drama. Lead by Elizabeth Hurley as Queen Helena, this 60-minute drama series depicts the lives of a fictional monarchy in modern times where power is everything, limits do not exist, and trust is a luxury this family can’t afford.
With some huge names including Elizabeth Hurley, Vincent Regan and of course, Joan Collins among the cast lineup, this is set to be a super popular look at a power-crazed, corrupt modern monarchy, take a look at the trailer below! Do you think the actual Queen knows what FML means...?
Nicky Douglas, Managing Director of Universal Networks Int (UK) said “As E! is the ultimate destination for A-list celebrity entertainment, “The Royals” is the perfect show to complement our line-up of Hollywood ‘royalty’. We are particularly excited by “The Royals” as E!’s first original scripted drama is set in the UK, features a stellar British cast, including Elizabeth Hurley and Joan Collins, together with young emerging local talent.”
E! don’t tend to do things by halves, from reality shows to A-list news, they know how to grab an audience so I am pretty sure that The Royals will be exactly the same, creating a stellar lineup for a new series is something they do best. Now you didn't think I'd let you go without another sneak peek...here you go!
