    The historical drama “Marie Antoinette” from “The Favorite” writer Deborah Davis heads to BBC

    According to the sources, the U.K streamer BBC Two has acquired the upcoming historical drama, Marie Antoinette. The tale of the modern young queen is created and written by Deborah Davis, the writer of the incredible story of the film, The Favourite.

    Marie Antoinette: Plot

    Marie Antoinette is a historical drama that narrates the story of a remarkably modern and futuristic young queen of France. The drama is an adaptation of the French queen’s original history. However, the new series will show it in a new and modish way. The queen, portrayed by Emilia Schüle, gets married off to the Dauphin of France at the young age of 14 years. Further, the drama will feature her evolution from a young and wilful princess to a supermodel. While crossing the rules of the French Court under certain political pressures, the queen also fights the rumours against her.
