(from Starz's press release, May 2018) Starz, a Lionsgate company (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B), announced today production has commenced on the STARZ Limited Series "The Spanish Princess," the third installment following the Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) award-nominated STARZ Original Miniseries "The White Queen" and the critically-acclaimed STARZ Original Limited Series "The White Princess." Produced by Playground and All3 Media's New Pictures, the Limited Series is drawn from the global best-selling novels, The Constant Princess and The King's Curse, written by Philippa Gregory. Returning to the world of Tudor royal court intrigue, "The Spanish Princess" is a powerful and epic story told uniquely from the point of view of the women, which also sheds light on a previously untold corner of history: the lives of people of color, living and working in 16th century London. Acclaimed writer Emma Frost returns (STARZ Originals "The White Queen," and "The White Princess," "The Man in the High Castle"), along with the award-winning writer Matthew Graham ("Life on Mars," "Electric Dreams," "Dr. Who"), both serving as showrunners and executive producers. The first two episodes will be directed by Birgitte Stærmose ("Norskov," Darling), as one of an all-female directing line-up.
