AMC+ Picks Up Psychological Thriller Anne Boleyn


AMC+ has acquired the new three-part psychological thriller Anne Boleyn, starring Jodie Turner-Smith (Queen & Slim, Without Remorse).

The drama explores the final months of Anne Boleyn’s life from the eponymous Queen’s perspective. The AMC+ original series will make its U.S. premiere on December 9, with the two remaining episodes released on consecutive Thursdays.

Eve Hedderwick Turner penned the three-part miniseries. Lynsey Miller (Deadwater Fell, Doing Money, The Boy with the Topknot) directed.

“We are proud to add Anne Boleyn to our slate of AMC+ original series,” said Courtney Thomasma, general manager for AMC+. “Featuring a superb ensemble cast led by Jodie Turner-Smith’s mesmerizing performance and a predominantly female creative team, this groundbreaking drama, told from the unique perspective of one of history’s most fascinating, and scrutinized, women, makes for a can’t-miss television event to end the year.”

Faye Ward and Hannah Farrell, creative directors at Fable Pictures, said: “We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with AMC—the home of many visionary shows that have inspired us over the years. Jodie Turner-Smith is mesmerizing as Anne Boleyn, and we can’t wait for audiences to see her exploding the myths around one of England’s most notorious queens.”
