    Netflix To Spend £100 Million On Drama About The Queen

    Written by Peter Morgan and following the life of Queen Elizabeth II, this will be the first original Netflix series made in the UK.

    Netflix is spend £100 million on an epic drama series following the reign of Queen Elizabeth II – the first time it's made an original show in the UK.

    All the pomp and pageantry of the royal household will no doubt mean there is a huge international audience for this.

    At this point, not many people whould bet against Helen Mirren being cast in the lead role.

    This is further evidence Netflix is a now serious force in original entertainment.

    Other original shows include Arrested Development, Orange is the New Black and Hemlock Grove.

    We just hope this will be as entertaining as The Queen's last cinematic outing.
