She ruled Russia and transformed its place in the world.

An epic historical romance that delves into the politically tumultuous and sexually charged court of the most powerful female monarch in history. Catherine wielded supreme power throughout Russia for nearly half of the 18th century. Strong-minded, independent, brilliantly intelligent and sexually liberated, she was the definition of the modern woman. This series follows Catherine's passionate affair with her romantic and political soul mate, Grigory Potemkin.

Amid scandal, intrigue and immense conflict, this is a story of obsessive love. Unable to publicly marry and famously promiscuous, they develop a unique and devoted relationship; overcoming their adversaries, claiming the Crimea, and together shaping Russia into the country we know today.

Starring Helen Mirren (The Queen), Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Gina McKee (The Borgias) and Rory Kinnear (Skyfall).
