Gird Your Loins! Prime Video Releases Official First Look Images and Launch Date for My Lady Jane.



This might be history, but it's not your great-grandparent's history! Prime Video has taken what we know about one historical great and made it even better with a more modern twist! Check out this synopsis!


Gird your loins for the tragic tale of Lady Jane Grey, the young Tudor noblewoman who was Queen of England for nine days and then beheaded in 1553... F*ck that. We’re retelling history the way it should have happened: the damsel in distress saves herself. This is an epic tale of true love and high adventure set in an alt-universe of action, history, fantasy, comedy, romance, and rompy-pompy. Buckle up.




Prime Video released first-look images from My Lady Jane, the quick-witted romantic new series set in an alt-fantasy Tudor world. Inspired by the best-selling book, My Lady Jane is a radical retelling of English royal history, in which King Henry VIII’s son Edward does not die of tuberculosis, Lady Jane Grey is not beheaded, and neither is her rascal of a husband Guildford. At the center of this rollicking new series is the brilliant and headstrong Jane who is unexpectedly crowned queen overnight and finds herself the target of nefarious villains coming for the crown (and her head)... My Lady Jane is an epic tale of true love and high adventure, where the damsel in distress saves herself, her true love, and then the Kingdom.


The cast is led by newcomer Emily Bader in the titular role of Jane Grey. Starring opposite her is Edward Bluemel (Killing Eve) as Guildford Dudley.  Jordan Peters (Pirates) plays King Edward.




Dominic Cooper (Preacher) plays Lord Seymour, Anna Chancellor (Pennyworth) plays Jane’s mother, Lady Frances Grey, and Rob Brydon (The Trip) plays Lord Dudley, Guildford’s father.  Jim Broadbent (The Duke) plays the Duke of Leicester, Jane’s uncle.


Henry Ashton (Creation Stories) plays Guildford’s brother, Stan, and Isabella Brownson (Napoleon) and Robyn Betteridge (Wheel of Time) play Jane’s sisters. Kate O’Flynn (Landscapers) and Abbie Hern (Enola Holmes 2) portray the King’s sisters Princess Mary and Princess Bess respectively.

Additional cast includes Máiréad Tyers (Extraordinary), Joe Klocek (The Dry), and Michael Workeye (This is Going to Hurt).


Creator Gemma Burgess (Brooklyn Girls trilogy) is co-showrunner/executive producer, Meredith Glynn (The Boys) is co-showrunner/executive producer, Jamie Babbit (Only Murders in the Building) directs five of the eight episodes and is producing director/executive producer, and Sarah Bradshaw (Citadel, The Mummy, HBO's upcoming The Hedge Knight) and Laurie MacDonald (The Ring, Zorro, Men In Black, Gladiator) are executive producers.


The series will premiere exclusively on Prime Video on Thursday, June 27th in more than 240 countries and territories around the world.
