    The Crown, which will tell the story of Queen Elisabeth II. and “the inside story of two of the most famous addresses in the world – Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street – and the intrigues, love lives and machinations behind the great events that shaped the second half of the 20th century”, in 6 seasons á 10 episodes, will air on Netflix 4th November.

    Here is the trailer.

    Apparently the series cost £100 million to make, so hopefully they will get some awards love.

    It sounds good on paper, but the trailer looks very Downton Abbey-ish (I mean soapy). But I will watch the first couple episodes, just to see Matt Smith and Claire Foy as Elisabeth and Prinz Philipp.

    The show is created and written by Peter Morgan, so it has very good potential to begin with. It comes at the right time and could easily take Downton Abbey’s slot.

    And John Lithgow as Sir Winston Churchill? He’ll win another Emmy.

    Great director, terrific cast…although I think a few may be becoming typecast. We’ve seen some of these players before.
    Speaking of which, too bad no Mark Rylance.
    Claire Foy was spectacular as Anne Boleyn in Wolf Hall.

    I am so there for this. My cup of tea hands down. Hopefully they get it ‘right’.

    I actually completely forgot that she was snubbed at the Emmys when making my list above. Such a ridiculous snub.

    This is not my type of show at all, but I think I might check it out. The trailer actually looks quite visually impressive, and I’ll try just about any original Netflix programming.

    More social commentary and less soap opera would be nice. So I hope the writing is strong and not like Downton Abbey. Ha!
