We’re very excited to be able to announce that our Jack Archer will take the lead role of Provence in the upcoming Marie Antoinette series for Canal+, as filming commences in Paris this week.

An eight-part drama created and written by Deborah Davis (The Favourite), the show will tell the story of the famed queen, who was the last queen of France before the French Revolution.

Additional writers are Louise Ironside (The Split), Avril E. Russell (All on a Summer’s Day) and Chloë Moss (Run Sister Run). The series is directed by Pete Travis (Bloodlands) and Geoffrey Enthoven (Children of Love).

Filming will take place in historical locations across France, including the Châteaux of Versailles, Vaux-le-Vicomte, Lésigny, Champs, Voisins, and in the studios of Bry-sur-Marne.

A release date is to be announced.
