My Lady Jane

My Lady Jane – trailer for Prime Video’s alt-Tudor comic fantasy

Posted Filed under

The series reimagines the life of Lady Jane Grey with wanton disregard for history. And Rob Brydon. 

Inspired by the bestselling book, My Lady Jane offers a radical redo of Tudor history.

In this alternate set of events, Edward VI does not die of tuberculosis, Lady Jane Grey is not beheaded, and neither is her scoundrel of a husband Guildford. Instead, the show follows a brilliant and headstrong Jane who is shocked to be crowned queen and finds herself the target of nefarious villains coming for the crown (and her head!)

My Lady Jane stars Emily Bader (Charmed) in the title role, with Edward Bluemel (Killing Eve) as Guildford Dudley and Jordan Peters (Pirates) plays King Edward.

It also boasts a crop of well-known acting talent, including Dominic Cooper, Anna Chancellor, Rob Brydon and Jim Broadbent.

Here’s what prime say about My Lady Jane

Gird your loins for the tragic tale of Lady Jane Grey, the young Tudor noblewoman who was Queen of England for nine days and then beheaded in 1553… F*ck that. We’re retelling history the way it should have happened: the damsel in distress saves herself. This is an epic tale of true love and high adventure set in an alt-universe of action, history, fantasy, comedy, romance, and rompy-pompy. Buckle up.

Also in the cast are Henry Ashton (Outlander, Isabella Brownson (Napoleon) and Robyn Betteridge (The Wheel of Time). Plus Kate O’Flynn (Everyone Else Burns) and Abbie Hern (Enola Holmes 2). Plus, Extraordinary‘s Máiréad Tyers, Joe Klocek (The Dry) and Michael Workeye (This is Going to Hurt).

The show comes from co-showrunner/executive producers Gemma Burgess (Brooklyn Girls trilogy) and Meredith Glynn (The Boys). Laurie MacDonald (Men In Black, Gladiator), and Sarah Bradshaw (The Mummy, The Hedge Knight) are executive producers. Jamie Babbit (Only Murders in the Building) directs five of the eight episodes and is producing director/executive producer.

My Lady Jane lands at Prime Video on 27th June, 2024 with an eight-part series.
