First Look: Netflix's The Crown

Adding something a little regal to their impressive slew of television programmes, Netflix have an upcoming series, titled The Crown, which will focus on Queen Elizabeth (Claire Foy).

The 10 part series is biographical look into the royal family of the Commonwealth Realms and is created and written by Frost/Nixon's Peter Morgan. The series will also feature former Doctor Who actor, Matt Smith as Prince Philip Mountbatten as well as Dexter's John Lithgow as Winston Churchill, Jared Harris as George VI to name a few.

Although an exact release date has yet to be confirmed, Netflix did recently release a trailer for the series and it certainly looks wonderfully lavish. While exploring Queen Elizabeth has been done in recent times (notably with a certain Helen Mirren movie), this certainly looks like it'll add another interesting slate on the Royal family and with the powerhouse casting for it, I imagine it's going to be another jewel in Netflix's impressive crown.


The Crown is coming to Netflix in 2016. Release date to be confirmed.
