WELCOME BACK IN SEPTEMBER

 

“THE CROWN”, A BRITISH TV SERIES ON NETFLIX (1B2, B2 C1, C2)

the-crown

Netflix‘s ambitious new series The Crown is the most expensive TV series to date, costing the streaming service over $130 million (via Daily Beast). A lavish – and thoroughly British – affair which sees the reunion of the creative team behind 2006’s Oscar-winning biopic The Queen, starring Helen Mirren. Screenwriter Peter Morgan and producer Andy Harries are here joined by Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry.

Taking its basis from Morgan’s 2013 play The Audience, the series is set to trace the reign of Queen Elizabeth II from her early years to the present day, balanced over the course of six seasons of 10 episodes each. The show promises to tell, “the inside 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.”

AS MANY OF THE TEV SERIES ON NETFLIX ARE AMERICAN, THIS MIGHT BE A GOOD CHANCE TO LISTEN TO BRITISH ENGLISH AND KEEP UP YOUR ENGLISH DURING THE SUMMER. SEASON 1 IS ALSO ON ORORO TV WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
