Starz Releases ‘The White Queen’ Inside Look

Starz’s inside look at The White Queen makes it clear that the women will be taking center stage in the battle for the throne of England. Based on Philippa Gregory’s The Cousins’War, the 10-part series is set in 1464 when the newly crowned King Edward IV (Max Irons) chooses Elizabeth Woodville (Rebecca Ferguson) as his Queen setting off a deadly power struggle between The House of York and The House of Lancaster (which were, in fact, two sides of the same family).

While the men are off fighting their war on the battlefield, Elizabeth is left to defend her seat from Margaret Beaufort (Amanda Hale) and Anne Neville (Faye Marsay) while Lord Warwick “The Kingmaker” (James Frain) works behind-the-scenes to manipulate the situation even further. Watch the video below for a closer look at the series from the stars and writer Emma Frost.

The White Queen premieres Saturday, August 10th at 8PM ET/PT on Starz.
