Helen Mirren Holds The Power In Catherine The Great Trailer

HBO has released the official trailer for their upcoming miniseries Catherine the Great, highlighting the true story of the titular monarch’s long reign in Russia. Starring Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren as one of history’s most powerful women, the series is set to make its debut sometime this fall on HBO. Check out the video below!

Catherine the Great is a four-part drama that delves into the politically-tumultuous and sexually-charged court of the most powerful female monarch in history. Catherine wielded supreme power throughout Russia for nearly half of the 18th century – strong-minded, independent, brilliantly-intelligent and sexually-liberated, she was the definition of the modern woman.

Unable to publicly marry and famously promiscuous, they develop a unique and devoted relationship, overcoming their adversaries and together shaping Russia as we know it today.

The series will also feature Jason Clarke (Pet Sematary) as Grigory Potemkin, Gina McKee (The Lost Prince) as Praskovya Bruce, Rory Kinnear (Skyfall) as Nikita Ivanovich Panin and Richard Roxburgh (Van Helsing) as Grigory Orlov.

Thompson (Woman in GoldDeath Comes to Pemberley) for Origin Pictures and Charlie Pattinson (Elizabeth IThe Missing, Skins) for New Pictures, Helen Mirren and Philip Martin.
