BBC Plans New Series About The English Throne


The Guardian posted an article today about a new BBC1 series planned for the upcoming year about The War of Roses. The network is hoping to give The Tudors fans something new to be excited about with this TV adaptation of Philipa Gregory’s series The Cousin’s War. The article describes the  new show as:

“A twist on the male-dominated lens through which history is frequently viewed, the epic serial about one of the bloodiest periods in English history will be told from the point of view of powerful women who ‘shaped their men and who shaped history in the process.’”

Male-dominated, epic, bloody, and full of powerful women? Sounds promising!

BBC has not yet hired any cast or decided on how many episodes the series will contain.

    Will this be shown in the U.S.? I really hope so. If you look on Facebook you will see many people from the U.S. asking the same question.
