DESCRIPTION:
(from E!'s press release, March 2014) E!'s first-ever original scripted series, "The Royals," is a one-hour drama about a fictional British Royal family set in modern day London. Produced by Lionsgate, the Royals inhabit a world of opulence and regal tradition that caters to any and every desire, but one that also comes with a price tag of duty, destiny and intense public scrutiny. Set and shot in Great Britain, "The Royals" pits public perception of the royal family against the reality of life inside the castle walls, from the lavish parties and high stakes political summits, to the private family gatherings and secret romances. However being born into this elite circle comes at a cost and the Royals' lives are played out on a world stage where press is 24/7 and social media drives an insatiable appetite to follow their every move. The sweeping series is executive produced, written and directed by Mark Schwahn ("One Tree Hill"), and executive produced by Brian Robbins and Joe Davola ("One Tree Hill," "Smallville"). The ensemble cast includes Elizabeth Hurley, Vincent Regan, William Moseley, Alexandra Park, Tom Austen, Jake Maskall, Ukweli Roach and Oliver Milburn.
