Mark Schwahn, the creator of the hit series One Tree Hill, is back with The Royals—an exciting new show that offers viewers a fresh perspective on royalty.
The Royals stars an impressive cast that includes Elizabeth Hurley, Vincent Regan, William Moseley and Alexandra Park, each of whom will portray a member of a fictional royal family in modern-day London.
"I just thought it would be really interesting to take a look behind the curtain," Schwahn reveals. "Who are these people? What do they want? What will they do to get it? I thought it was really fascinating and a great idea for the foundation of a story."
The series, which debuts in early March, will depict the royal family's lavish lifestyles and will include plenty of drama, love triangles, deadly secrets, and more.
"It's a very nice combination of what the public sees and what the public will never see," adds Hurley (who plays Queen Helena). "And we had a lot of fun doing the latter bit."
