CATHERINE THE GREAT is a sweeping historical epic written by Nigel Williams, the award-winning writer of Elizabeth I.
The series depicts the strong-minded, independent, and sexually liberated Catherine, who wielded supreme power throughout Russia for nearly half of the 18th century. Amid a politically tumultuous and sexually charged court, Catherine’s obsessive romance with lover Grigory Potemkin evolved into a unique and devoted relationship which helped shape Russia as we know it today.
Multi-award-winning Helen Mirren plays the lead role in the third commission from Sky and HBO’s high-end global drama partnership.
Produced by New Pictures and Origin Pictures.
