The Serpent Queen -Starz TV Series on Catherine de Medicis

I'm actually excited by this project as Starz have commissioned a TV series based on The Renaissance Queen of France by Leonie Frieda.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14022350/

https://deadline.com/2021/08/the-ser...ma-1234810150/

The series will follow Catherine's arrival in France ,marriage with Henri and rivalry with Diane and then Catherine's life after 1559 as the Regent of France and main power player at the French Court for the next 30 years.
Filming began in April 2021 on location in France with Samantha Morton cast in the lead role as Catherine de Medicis.

Other characters who will appear so far.

Louis de Bourbon
Antoinette de Guise
Antoine de Bourbon
Duke de Montmorency
Francois I
Henri II
Diane de Poitiers
Cardinal de Guise
Cardinal de Lorraine
Pope Clement VII
Queen Eleanor (Eleanor of Austria)
The Dauphin Francois
Mary Queen of Scots.

French actress Guillemette Buffet will play Catherine's French mother Madeleine de La Tour d'Auvergne, Duchess of Urbino, Countess of Boulogne, dame de St Saturnin.

The duchess died on April 28th ,1519 only 2 weeks after giving birth of Catherine and was followed to the grave on May 4th by her husband Lorenzo de' Medici, Duke of Urbino.

That's a good cast list. Samantha Morton is a good casting choice - she has the acting chops for a role as complex as Catherine.

But I'm not quite sure what to make of Colm Meaney as Francis I. That's... interesting :)

And Charles Dance as Pope Clement? *chef's kiss* He's such a good baddie, and he adds class to everything he's in.

Only two French actors, in a show that supposedly takes place in France. The Duke of Montmorency is played by a Dutch actor.

Is it known when the series will be broadcasted?
