2017: The White Princess (TV Mini-Series)
The White Princess is a historical drama television miniseries developed for Starz. It is based on Philippa Gregory’s 2013 novel of the same name and, to a lesser extent, its sequel The King’s Curse. It is a sequel to the 2013 miniseries The White Queen, which adapted three of Gregory’s previous novels. The White Princess sees England ostensibly united by the marriage of Elizabeth of York and King Henry VII, but their personal and political rift runs deep and the war that rages between them threatens to tear the kingdom apart once again.

What the critics said

It has a lot of ground to cover and a lot of historical beats to hit, but it’s never stuffy or slow. Though the miniseries is not necessarily a stylistic innovation to the genre, its narrative focus on the women who are controlling the gears of power is certainly refreshing. Lizzie and Henry’s story is also not a love story in any traditional sense, but The White Princess unfolds in a way that shows the intricacies of their partnership alongside the always uneasy status of those in the royal court. No one is ever safe, and that tension permeates The White Princess. Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown, but given the unending plotting of the women around him, Henry’s life is a piece of cake. (Allison Keene – Collider, April 12, 2017)

Critics Consensus: Well-acted and enlivened by its fresh perspective, The White Princess delivers more than enough intrigue to satisfy fans of period British royal court drama.
