DESCRIPTION:
(from Starz's press release, July 2013) STARZ is excited to announce that an advance screening of the highly anticipated period drama "The White Queen" will air on Friday, August 9th at 10pm ET/PT following the season two finale of 1959 mob drama "Magic City" at 9pm. Starz is also excited to share a new trailer for the 10-episode limited series. "The White Queen," adapted from Philippa Gregory's best-selling novels based on England's War of the Roses (also known as The Cousins' War) will officially premiere on STARZ in the U.S. on Saturday, August 10th at 8pm ET/PT; all following episodes will air Saturdays at 9pm ET/PT. "The White Queen" novels and series are told from the perspective of the three fiercely determined women who laid claim to the English throne: Elizabeth Woodville (The White Queen), Margaret Beaufort (The Red Queen) and Anne Neville (The Kingmaker's Daughter). While the men fought and killed on the battlefield in their quest for power, these three women used whatever means possible to wage war on their enemies who stood in their way and threatened their claim. In the STARZ original drama, the year is 1464, before the Tudor dynasty ruled England, and war has been ravaging throughout the country over who is the rightful king. It is a blood feud between two sides of the same family; The House of York and The House of Lancaster. The House of York's young heir Edward IV is crowned King of England with the help of his mentor and advisor, the master manipulator Lord Warwick, known at court as "The Kingmaker." When Edward falls in love with a beautiful Lancastrian commoner, Elizabeth Woodville, Warwick's plan to control the throne comes crashing down. A violent, high-stakes struggle for the crown ensues between Elizabeth, her fiercest adversary, Lancastrian Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville, a pawn in her father's power game.
