Compared to The Crown, maybe? My personal concern is that unlike Peter Morgan, who is at least interested in what makes the Windsors tick, and tries to understand them on their terms - even if those terms aren’t flattering to the general public; Javier Olivares just wants to put the knife in with no motivation or context.

My main concern is that this will be devoid of empathy and understanding for JC himself (I’ve been very critical of him elsewhere but I don’t believe he started out bad per se nor was he alone in is poor life choices) and the RF more broadly. This kind of understanding of motivation and moral seriousness is part of what makes The Crown so compelling for me (I know that others in the forum will disagree). The fact he has cited a writer known for harsh Satire as an influence makes me thing this will be an exercise in tearing JC down rather than getting inside his head.

It’s early days and the producers might surprise us - the Isabel series was much better than many expected it to be, so who knows?

The other issues - budget for sets and costumes and cgi for certain things- that’s also a bit concerning but The Crown gets a budget of $13 million an episode so there’s no way MediaPro can match that level of production design and that can ruin the experience if the creators can’t get creative to get around it.

Seems that XRey will be a “multilingual” series and will have the same production team as Homeland
