Starz has revealed the official teaser for The Spanish Princess, a new story in the dynastic saga of Tudor England and drawn from the global best sellers The Constant Princess and The King’s Curse by Philippa Gregory. Premiering this spring, you can watch The Spanish Princess teaser above.
The STARZ Original Limited series continues the story from the Golden Globe and Emmy award-nominated STARZ Original Miniseries The White Queen and the STARZ Original Limited Series The White Princess. Produced by All3 Media’s New Pictures and Playground, The Spanish Princess is a powerful, epic story that not only returns the audience to the world of royal court intrigue as seen uniquely through the perspective of the women, but also sheds light on a previously untold corner of history – the lives of people of color, living and working in 16th century London.
Catherine of Aragon (Charlotte Hope), is the beautiful teenaged princess of Spain who was promised the English throne since she was a child. She arrives in a grey, rain-lashed England with her glorious and diverse court including her lady-in-waiting Lina – an African Moor. She is Princess of Wales now, but when her husband Prince Arthur dies suddenly, the throne seems lost to Catherine. Until she claims her marriage was never consummated and that as a virgin she may set her sights on the new heir, the charismatic and headstrong Prince Harry who will one day rule as King Henry VIII.
Acclaimed writers Emma Frost (The White Queen, The White Princess, The Man in the High Castle) and Matthew Graham (Life on Mars, Electric Dreams, Doctor Who) are serving as showrunners and executive producers.
Executive producing with Frost and Graham are Colin Callender (The White Queen, The Dresser, Wolf Hall) and Scott Huff (Howards End, The White Princess, The Missing) from Playground and Charlie Pattinson (The White Queen, Requiem, The Missing 1 & 2) and Charlie Hampton (Shameless, Wild at Heart, and Inspector George Gently) from All3 Media’s New Pictures.
