Watch Dame Helen Mirren reigning supreme as the 18th century Russian empress
She overthrew her husband, Peter III, in a coup d'état'to become Russia's longest ruling female leader and transformed the country into one of the great powers of Europe.
Now, we have the first look of Catherine the Great in a new trailer from Sky. Starring Dame Helen Mirren as the Empress, and Jason Clarke as General Grigory Potemkin, the high-end drama series is also a HBO production and will air in the autumn.
Outpost VFX is delighted to work on another production with Sky and HBO, having recently delivered shots for Sky series Curfew earlier this year as well as working on the much-anticipated Watchmen adaptation for HBO.
