Netflix today unveiled the trailer for its most expensive series to date, The Crown.
Following the lives of Britain’s royal family in the 20th century, The Crown focuses primarily on the reign of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy) and the personal tribulations she faces while trying to assume her role as head of the nation.
While Netflix has been known to have lavish budgets for its series, The Crown surpasses all its previous endeavors, totaling out at $156 million.
The show sees Jonathan Lithgow take on the iconic role of Winston Churchill and Doctor Who‘s Matt Smith step into the shoes of Prince Phillip.
Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon) helms the ship in the role of show runner and Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) executive produces and will direct as well.
