Netflix released the full trailer for its upcoming royal drama The Crown. Written by Peter Morgan (The Queen), the series details the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy). Most importantly, it features a near-certain star turn by John Lithgow as Winston Churchill. The $130 million series will reportedly run six seasons as it chronicles Queen Elizabeth’s life as Queen of England through present day.
This series could provide Netflix that elusive Drama Series Emmy that House of Cards, Bloodline, and Orange Is the New Black have yet to provide. Or it could just be costume porn. We’re OK either way.
The Crown drops November 4, 2016.
