We are excited to announce that The Great starring our Sebastian De Souza as a leading series regular will premiere on Hulu on the 15th May.

Written by the Oscar-nominated Tony McNamara (The Favourite), The Great is a satirical, comedic drama about the rise of Catherine the Great (Elle Fanning) from outsider to the longest reigning female ruler in Russia’s history who begins her story when she arrives in Russia for an arranged marriage to the mercurial Emperor Peter (Nicholas Hoult).

In an interview with Deadline, Tony McNamara stated “There have been a lot of Catherine the Great projects around…but I think we’ve got an amazing cast and a different point of view. It’s not a straight historical drama. It’s very much my version of what historical dramas should be.”
