JODIE COMER IS 'WHITE PRINCESS' IN STARZ' EPIC 'WHITE QUEEN' SERIES SEQUEL! ITV ORDERS SECOND SEASON OF 'THE DURRELLS' PERIOD SET SERIES WITH KEELEY HAWES

 JODIE COMER TO LEAD 
 'THE WHITE QUEEN' SEQUEL SERIES
We're all British today, starting with the news coming from Starz who, as you know, have took over WHITE QUEEN series sequel from BBC and are doing WHITE PRINCESS second season on their own. Now they have the lead star! Jodie Comer (Doctor Foster) will lead the adaptation of Philippa Gregory's book following the War of Roses!
THE WHITE PRINCESS now follows the beautiful eldest daughter of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville (played by Max Irons and Rebecca Ferguson in the original series) princess Elizabeth. She faces a conflict of loyalties between the red rose and the white. Forced into marriage with Henry VII, she must reconcile her slowly growing love for him with her loyalty to the House of York, and choose between her mother’s rebellion and her husband’s tyranny. Then she has to meet the Pretender, whose claim denies the House of Tudor itself.

 KEELEY HAWES' THE DURRELLS 
ARE GETTING A SECOND SEASON!
After receiving tons of love from the British audience which await each Sunday with huge anticipation to see a new episode of ITV's THE DURRELLS series, it has been announced today that the drama will be getting a second season as well! Starring gorgeous Keeley Hawes the drama follows the Durrell family who back in 1935 decide to move from dreary Bournemouth to the sunshine of the Greek island of Corfu! It is an adaptation of Gerald Durrell's book My Family and Other Animals.

    3. haven't heard so far, but it probably will. Esquire is currently airing ITV's BEOWULF and FX will air their HOUDINI AND DOYLE, methinks, they seem to always see it to different channels

    1. Exactly, Peter :) If I remember correctly WHITE QUEEN was shot in Belgium, maybe they do the same with WHITE PRINCESS :)

    2. That is right. Even a Flemish actress was involved. Veerle Baeten.

      Maybe? You never know! :-D

    1. it is one of those cases in which they think they will be unique but they turn out to be hilarious. Them socks cut her legs in half. But it is not her fault, it was the photoshoot.
