Telly show “The White Princess”
In case you need costume TV series, atmosphere of plots, betrayals and luxurious life, etiquette and royal priorities, “The White Princess” might cater your taste. Director of “The Hour”, “Call the Midwife” and “The White Queen” Jamie Payne along with script writer of “The Man in High Castle” and “Shameless” Emma Frost made a visual narrative about Elizabeth of York and Henry VII’s love story. One might hope that there will be the suspense and worthy message as in British series about post-war London and a squad of helpful devoted women or well-written plot and gradual action’s unveiling of the alternative-history show. Anyway, as experience proves, pilot seasons are mostly good. We’ll wait – we’ll see.
