The series charts one of the most tumultuous times in British history. It’s a tale of power, love and betrayal, and follows the tempestuous marriage between the Queen of England, Elizabeth of York (Jodie Comer) and King Henry VII (Jacob Collins-Levy).
Forced into marriage with Henry VII, Elizabeth must reconcile her slowly growing love for him with her loyalty to the House of York, and choose between her mother’s rebellion and her husband’s tyranny. Then she has to meet the Pretender, whose claim denies the House of Tudor itself.
Along with Jodie Comer and Jacob Collins-Levy, Rebecca Benson, Kenneth Cranham, Essie Davis, and Rossy de Palma will also star in the miniseries.
All eight episodes will launch tonight. For more information, click here.
