The White Princess Heads to UKTV


UKTV has acquired The White Princess from Lionsgate for its Drama channel.

A Starz original limited series, The White Princess is the follow-up to the miniseries The White Queen. Both are from Company Pictures and Playground. The White Queen will also be shown on Drama.

The White Princess premieres November 11 from 9 p.m. new and exclusive to Drama and will be available to watch via UKTV Play.

UKTV’s general manager of Drama, Adrian Wills, said: “We are thrilled to be extending our relationship with Lionsgate. This gripping series, told from the perspective of three noblewomen waging an ongoing battle for the throne, has a superb cast and fantastic production talent. Its high-end production values and incredible storytelling make The White Princess a fantastic addition to Drama’s growing slate of new and exclusive shows.”

Peter Iacono, the president of international television and digital distribution at Lionsgate, added: “The White Princess is a further example of Lionsgate’s premium programming traveling to leading platforms across the globe. We are particularly pleased that U.K. viewers will have the opportunity to discover this exceptional drama series, set in England, on UKTV.”
