Netflix has revealed the first trailer for the upcoming drama The Crown, starring Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II and Matt Smith as Prince Philip. This is Netflix’s biggest and most expensive original series to date, costing $156 million to produce. The ten-part series will air later in 2016 and is described as a “gripping, decades-spanning inside story of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Prime Ministers who shaped Britains post-war destiny”. The Crown also stars John Lithgow as Winston Churchill, Greg Wise as Lord Louis Mountbatten, Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret, Jared Harris as George VI and Jeremy Northam as Anthony Eden.
Netflix has strangely called the trailer “Sizzle”, which makes little sense, but it’s certainly a compelling first look at the series. Watch below.
