"The Crown" (TV show) is an original drama series on Netflix that is the gripping, decades-spanning inside story of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Prime Ministers who shaped Britain's post-war destiny. The series tells the story of two of the most famous addresses in the world — Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street — and the intrigues, love lives and machinations behind the great events that shaped the second half of the 20th century. Two houses, two courts, one Crown.

The series focuses on Queen Elizabeth II as a 25-year-old newlywed faced with the daunting prospect of leading the world's most famous monarchy while forging a relationship with legendary Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill. The British Empire is in decline, the political world is in disarray, and a young woman takes the throne ... .a new era is dawning. Peter Morgan's masterfully researched scripts reveal the Queen's private journey behind the public facade with daring frankness. Prepare to be welcomed into the coveted world of power and privilege and behind locked doors in Westminster and Buckingham Palace ... the leaders of an empire await.

The cast includes Claire Foy (BBC2's "Wolf Hall") as Queen Elizabeth II, Matt Smith ("Dr. Who") as Prince Philip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh, John Lithgow ("Third Rock from the Sun") as Sir Winston Churchill, Victoria Hamilton as the Queen Mother, Jared Harris as King George VI, Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret and Dame Eileen Atkins as Queen Mary, among others.

The series reunites writer Peter Morgan ("The Queen," "Frost/Nixon") with director Stephen Daldry ("Billy Elliot," "The Hours") and producer Andy Harries ("The Queen"). Stephen Daldry, Philip Martin and Julian Jarrold will direct episodes from scripts by Peter Morgan.

"The Crown" is produced by Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television. Peter Morgan, Stephen Daldry, Philip Martin, Andy Harries, Suzanne Mackie and Tanya Seghatchian serve as executive producers along with Robert Fox and Matthew Byam Shaw. Andrew Eaton serves as producer.
