Starz Announces Premiere Date for Limited Series 'The Spanish Princess' Starring Charlotte Hope

Starz has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original limited series The Spanish Princess.

The followup to The White Queen and The White Princess, the new limited series will premiere on Sunday, May 5 at 8/7c.

Catherine of Aragon (Charlotte Hope) is the strong-willed young Princess of Spain, who has been promised the English throne since she was a child. She arrives in a grey, rain-lashed England with her glorious and diverse court including her ladies-in-waiting Lina (Stephanie Levi-John) - a Spanish noble of African Iberian descent - and the sweet, free-spirited Rosa (Nadia Parkes). When her husband Prince Arthur dies suddenly, the throne seems lost to Catherine until she devises an audacious plan and sets her sights on the new heir, the charismatic and headstrong Prince Harry (Ruairi O'Connor), who will one day rule as King Henry VIII.

The cast also features Aaron Cobham, Harriet Walter, Laura Carmichael, Elliot Cowan, Alan McKenna, Angus Imrie, Alexandra Moen and Georgie Henley.

Emma Frost and Matthew Graham developed the series based on Philippa Gregory's series of novels. They executive produce with Colin Callender, Scott Huff, Charlie Pattinson and Charlie Hampton. Playground Entertainment and New Pictures produce.
