HBO Picks Up Limited Series 'The Palace' Starring Kate Winslet

HBO has today given a series order to the original limited series The Palace starring Academy and Emmy Award winner Kate Winslet (The Reader, Mare of Easttown).

The series will depict one year within the walls of the palace of an authoritarian regime as it begins to unravel.

Will Tracy created the series, with Stephen Frears set to direct. They will executive produce with Winslet and Frank Rich.

"We are honored to be working with this incredibly talented group of filmmakers on The Palace," said Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming. "The notion that Kate Winslet and Stephen Frears, two of our industry's leading lights (who - remarkably - have never collaborated before now), are joining forces to bring Will Tracy's wildly original, prescient, and dazzling scripts to life at HBO is a dream come true for us."
