TV show description:
Based on the award-winning play called The Audience, this dramatic TV show revolves around the political rivalries and romance of Queen Elizabeth II. It focuses on her reign and the events that helped shape the latter half of the 20th century.
Taking place in the coveted world of power and privilege, the story unfolds behind the locked doors in Westminster and Buckingham Palace.
The series begins by focusing on Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy) as a 25-year-old newlywed, having married Prince Philip (Matt Smith). She’s faced with the daunting prospect of leading the world’s most famous monarchy while forging a relationship with legendary Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill (John Lithgow).
The British Empire is in decline, the political world is in disarray, and a young woman takes the throne — a new era is dawning. The Queen’s private journey unfolds behind the public facade with daring frankness.
