Catherine The Great is a four-part historical miniseries, starring Oscar-winner Helen Mirren as the tumultuous monarch and politician who rules the Russian empire and transformed its place in the world in the 18th century. The limited series will follow the end of Catherine's reign and her affair with Russian military leader Grigory Potemkin that helped shape the future of Russian politics.

Catherine The Great is an HBO and SKY co-production, produced by Origin Pictures and New Pictures. It will be made available on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in the UK and Ireland.

The project was also supported through Creative Europe at the development stage as part of Origin’s 2016 slate.
