My Lady Jane remakes English History on Prime Video: trailer

What if Lady Jane Gray hadn't been beheaded at 16, making her the legendary 9-Day Queen?

She went down in history as the most ephemeral queen of England. Jane Gray ascended the throne in 1554, beheaded 9 days later, aged just 16. In his book My Lady JaneCynthia Hand reinvents History in a wacky romance with offbeat humor.

Prime Video adapts the novel into series and the official trailer for My Lady Jane has just been put online, completely reinventing the Tudors, in a radical rereading of English Royalty.

In this version, “King Henry VIII's son, Edward, does not die of tuberculosis, Lady Jane Gray is not beheaded, nor is her scoundrel husband, Guildford. At the center of this new swashbuckling series is the brilliant and headstrong Jane, who is shocked to be crowned queen and finds herself the target of nefarious villains who are after the crown (and her head).” .


The young Emily Bader, unknown to the battalion, leads the cast in the role of Jane Grey. She will meet Edward Bluemel (Killing Eve) as Guildford Dudley. Jordan Peters will be King Edward. Dominic Cooper will play Lord Seymour and Anna Chancellor will play Jane's mother, Lady Frances Grey.

The designer is Gemma Burgess and Jamie Babbit (Only Murders in the Building) produced 5 episodes.

The 8 episodes of My Lady Jane will be broadcast for Thursday, June 27 on Prime Video.
