From the writer of "The Favourite" comes another historical (sort of) and satirical production.
"The Great" tells the story of Catherine the Great (Elle Fanning), who arrives in Russia to marry Emperor Peter (Nicholas Hoult). Intelligent and exuberant, she soon realises that her role in the society is diminished, even as empress, and she must find a way to right an outdated and sometimes outright backwards way of thinking. She has to be cunning and clever to overthrow her husband and govern Russia with a fresh, stronger hand. Small note: Catherine supported vaccination throughout the Russian empire.
The miniseries premieres on Hulu on 15 May 2020.
Starring Academy Award nominee Hugh Jackman, Academy Award winner Allison Janney and Emmy Award winner Ray Romano, "Bad Education" follows one of the biggest embezzlement scandals in the history of the United States.
Jackman plays the role of Frank Tassone in this once in a lifetime performance that some critics have named the best of his career.
Follow the true story turned TV series on HBO, starting April 25th.
