Catherine the Great, starring Academy Award® winner Helen Mirren, airs on Sky Atlantic tonight at 9pm. All four episodes will also be available on NOW TV.
Set against the lavish backdrop of the politically ruthless 18th century Russian court, Mirren's Empress must navigate power-hungry advisors and politicians, as well as past and present lovers.
Written by Nigel Williams (Elizabeth I) and directed by BAFTA and Emmy® Award-winning Philip Martin (The Crown), Catherine the Great is produced by Origin Pictures and New Pictures. It is the third commission from Sky and HBO’s high-end global drama partnership.
