This British series based on Philippa Gregory's The Cousins' War historical novel series is a riveting portrayal of one of the most dramatic and turbulent times in English history. A story of love and lust, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, it is uniquely told through the perspective of three different yet equally relentless women: Elizabeth Woodville and Margaret Beaufort (both grandmothers of Henry VIII), and Anne Neville (wife of Richard III). In their quest for power, they will scheme, manipulate, and seduce their way onto the English throne. Drama, not rated.
Starring Bruce Dern, Will Forte, June Squibb
