Universal Cable Productions Joins Lionsgate as Co-Producing Partner of "The Royals"

Los Angeles, CA, January 15, 2015 - E! Entertainment today announced the second season pick-up of the network's first original scripted series, "The Royals," in advance of its first season premiere on Sunday, March 15 at 10pm ET/PT. Created by Mark Schwahn, the hour-long drama centered on a fictional modern day royal family features a distinguished cast that includes Elizabeth Hurley and Vincent Regan as Queen Helena and King Simon, along with William Moseley and Alexandra Park as their devious and scandalous royal twins Prince Liam and Princess Eleanor. "The Royals" is a co-production of Lionsgate and Universal Cable Productions and will begin production on season two this spring in London.

"To renew this freshman series before its highly anticipated first season premiere underscores E!'s commitment to the scripted genre and our confidence and support of this groundbreaking and rule-breaking original series," said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Development, E! "We're thrilled to have Universal Cable Productions joining Lionsgate as a co-producing partner as we announce a second season pick-up for this scandalously fun series.'"

"Lionsgate has been a great partner throughout the years, and they really delivered for us with 'The Royals.' We're excited to be working with Jon Feltheimer, Kevin Beggs and their strong creative and production teams on this regal and excellent show," said Jeff Wachtel, President and Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment.

"We're very proud that E! chose 'The Royals' as its first original scripted series and delighted about this early season two pick-up," said Kevin Beggs, Chairman, Lionsgate Television Group. "The cast and creative team are exceptional and E! has been a tremendous partner in supporting the creative direction of the series from day one."

Love, hate, lust and revenge are taken to a delightfully decadent new level in this 60-minute drama series that goes inside a world where power is everything, limits do not exist, and trust is a luxury that no one can afford. Season two will go even deeper behind the pomp and ceremony where scandal continues to lurk, and all is fair in love and royalty.

The internationally renowned ensemble also includes Merritt Patterson, Jake Maskall, Ukweli Roach, Tom Austen, Sophie Colquhoun and Oliver Milburn. Joan Collins guest stars as the Grand Duchess of Oxford.

"The Royals" is co-produced by Lionsgate and UCP. The series is executive produced, written and directed by Mark Schwahn ("One Tree Hill"), and executive produced by Brian Robbins, Joe Davola ("One Tree Hill," "Smallville"), and Shauna Phelan.
