Here's the First Look at Gay Monarchy Series 'Mary & George'
Nicholas Galitzine stars in 'Mary & George!'
We couldn't be more excited for the upcoming series Mary & George, which follows the 16th Century Countess of Buckingham and her son as she raised him to seduce the King of England and become his Favourite. Now, we have the first images of stars Nicholas Galitzine and Julianne Moore.
Mary & George is based on the true story of Mary Villiers, the Countess of Buckingham, who raised her beautiful and charismatic son, George, to seduce King James of Scotland and England and become his lover.
“Through outrageous scheming, the pair rose from humble beginnings to become the richest, most titled and influential players the English court had ever seen, and the King’s most trusted advisors,” the show's description reads. “And with England’s place on the world stage under threat from a Spanish invasion and rioters taking to the streets to denounce the King, the stakes could not have been higher.”
The show, starring Julianne Moore, Nicholas Galitzine, and Tony Curran, is described as “a dangerously daring historical psychodrama about an outrageous mother and son who schemed, seduced, and killed to conquer the court of England and the bed of King James.”
Mary & George will stream on Sky Atlantic in the UK and Ireland, and will be distributed by AMC Networks in the US. Keep scrolling to see even more images of this sexy new show!
