StarzPlay Sets Global Premiere for The Spanish Princess


The limited series The Spanish Princess has been slated to launch May 5 on StarzPlay in the U.K. and Germany, as well as on Starz in the U.S.

The Spanish Princess marks the third installment, following the Starz original miniseries The White Queen and limited series The White Princess. Produced by Playground and all3media’s New Pictures, The Spanish Princess is drawn from the global best-selling novels, The Constant Princess and The King’s Curse, written by Philippa Gregory.

Showrunners Emma Frost and Matthew Graham said: “Catherine of Aragon has generally been depicted negatively, as an unwanted and burdensome wife, so this story of her early years as a strong, driven young woman and shrewd political player is a fresh and untold tale. We are also especially pleased to be able to bring into the light the inspiring story of people of color in early Tudor England.”
