OVATION TV CREATES A PROGRAMMING FEAST FOR FANS IN ADVANCE OF THE THIRD AND FINAL SEASON OF VERSAILLES

A Mix of Original Behind-the-Scenes Specials, Series Catch-up Shows, and Versailles Travelogues, as well as Historical Documentaries and a Marathon of Seasons 1 & 2 to Provide a Versailles Celebration Fit for a King

Los Angeles, CA - August 22, 2018 - In anticipation of the October 6 premiere of the third and final season of the historical drama series Versailles, Ovation, America's only arts network, has created a banquet of programming delicacies for hungry fans who've been starving for the series return. The network has produced behind-the-scenes specials featuring interviews with the cast and crew, catch-up shows to get new fans up to speed on all the goings on in the court of King Louis XIV, and a travel special that takes viewers on a tour of city of Versailles today, including its famous Chateau. In addition, Ovation has acquired several documentaries on the history of Versailles, as well as some of its famous (and infamous!) residents throughout the centuries.

Here's what's on the royal menu:

The Rise & Fall of Versailles - available on VOD starting August 13.

Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI: Three kings, three reigns, three stories. This collection offers a sensitive and endearing portrait of the monarchs and recreates their life, loves and political willpower. From the Sun King, admired by the court and his subjects, to Louis XVI, the only King of France ever to be executed, we will revisit the Versailles of the 18th century until the French Revolution. Filmed in the spectacular staterooms, bedrooms and gardens of Versailles itself, brings the 150-year reign of France's three most famous monarchs to life, with the help of interviews of the world's leading specialists.

OVATION ORIGINAL PRODUCTION: Versailles: Behind the Scenes - available on VOD starting August 13.

"Versailles: Behind the Scenes" takes fans on a journey that reveals the mysteries, intrigues and love affairs of the extravagant court of Louis XIV. Plus, find out all about the dramatic dangers inside the palace and beyond coming up in season three. (Airs on Ovation on Monday, September 3 at 7am ET)

The Real Versailles - available on VOD starting September 6.

Lucy Worsley and Helen Castor tell the real-life stories behind one of the world's grandest buildings. They reveal in vivid detail the colorful world of sex, drama and intrigue that Louis XIV and his courtiers inhabited.

The Secret Versailles of Marie Antoinette - available on VOD starting September 9.

The Queen's Hamlet is a palace disguised as a peasant's cottage hidden in the Versailles gardens. A romantic hide-away, Marie-Antoinette conceived it as a reminder of her carefree youth in Vienna. The Revolution left it for a ruin, but two centuries later its renovation begins. In summer 2017, it reopened to the public restored to its original glory, as an extraordinary jewel of Versailles. Following the restoration, this docudrama will uncover Marie-Antoinette's greatness as a master of fashion and style and revisit the saga of France's legendary Queen, from Vienna to her demise on the Guillotine. An intimate portrait of a 'too-modern woman' caught in the whirlwinds of History. (Airs on Ovation on Saturday, September 8 at 10pm ET)
