“Two houses, two courts, one Crown” is the tagline for Netflix's newest blue-blooded drama, which will chronicle “the coveted world of power and privilege behind locked doors in Westminster and Buckingham Palace."

The highly-anticipated royal drama—with a reported $130 million budget—will recount the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II, played by Claire Foy. Each 10-part season will trace a different decade of the monarch’s life, beginning six years prior to her coronation, in 1947.

The show’s writer, Peter Morgan, reportedly brought the idea to Netflix after writing his 2015 Tony award-winning play, The Audience, starring Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth II. Now, he teams up again with The Audience director Stephen Daldry and producer Andy Harries for the small-screen adaptation of the 25-year-old queen’s rule of a post-war Britain.

The show will feature the beginning of the Queen’s marriage to Prince Philip, played by Dr. Who’s Matt Smith, and her relationship to then 77-year-old Prime Minister Winston Churchill, played by John Lithgow, along with other “great events that shaped the second half of the 20th Century.”

Watch the just-released trailer below and get ready to binge-watch as of November 4th.
