Netflix, drunk with power, is now throwing money at a series based on Queen Elizabeth (the current one) to the tune of $1,680,820
. (Yes, we've converted that from the reported price of one million pounds, because we still don't know where that button is on our computer.) The show, consisting of 20 hour-long episodes, is being penned by Peter Morgan, who wrote The Queen
, and directed by Stephen Daldry, who put on Morgan's version of The Audience.
Both The Queen
and The Audience
starred Helen Mirren as Elizabeth II.
