‘Becoming Elizabeth’ Preview

“Becoming Elizabeth” is the latest adaptation of the life of one of England’s most well-known monarchs, Queen Elizabeth I (Alicia Von Rittberg). The Starz press release describes the show as “a fascinating story” of the lesser-known time in her life, her early years.

It continues:

Long before she ascended the throne, young Elizabeth Tudor was an orphaned teenager who became embroiled in the political and sexual politics of the English court. With no clear heir, the death of King Henry the VIII sets into motion a dangerous scramble for power. His surviving children find themselves pawns in a game between the great families of England and the powers of Europe who vie for control of the country.

Elizabeth struggles to control her own destiny and take real power as the men around her attempt to claim her sovereignty. Her fascinating and factual journey to secure the crown is filled with scheming, betrayal and illicit relationships that threaten to bring forth her demise at a time in which every man or woman of the court is on the wheel of fortune, which may take them to a position of great power one moment, or the executioner’s block the next.

“We think we know her – the Virgin Queen, the white face powder, the Spanish Armada, Gloriana. We don’t,” said executive producer and writer Anya Reiss in a statement. “Long before she ascended to the throne, her story, and the story of those who surrounded her, is a story of ambition and betrayal. Every man or woman is on the wheel of fortune, which may take them to a position of great power one moment, or the executioner’s block the next.

“Henry VIII is dead and as his nine-year-old son Edward takes the throne – a power vacuum has opened up across England. Those wanting control seek to divide his children, Mary, Elizabeth and Edward as unrest between Catholics and Protestants ripples across the country. The English throne is a great game of keep or kill and Elizabeth must learn to play quickly.”

The premiere episode is titled “Keep Your Knife Bright” and its description reads, “Following the death of Henry VIII, his three children, Mary, Elizabeth and Edward, are now pawns in a dangerous game as the English court is plunged into a race for control of the new England they find themselves in.”

Then on June 19 comes episode two, titled “You Cannot Keep the Birds From Flying Over Your Head.” Its description reads, “Christmas at court, and a controversial masque leaves Protestant Edward and Catholic Mary at odds; Elizabeth finds herself in the middle as Mary demands she come live with her.”

“Becoming Elizabeth” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times on Starz.
