TRAILER: Emily Bader takes up the title role in My Lady Jane, a radical retelling of English royal history launching on Prime Video on June 27.


Set in an alternative fantasy Tudor world, the eight-episode series imagines what would have happened had King Henry VIII’s son Edward not die of tuberculosis, Lady Jane Grey is not beheaded, and neither is her scoundrel of a husband Guildford.

At the centre of this swashbuckling new series is the brilliant and headstrong Jane, who is shocked to be crowned queen and finds herself the target of nefarious villains coming for the crown (and her head).

Bader plays Jane Grey, with Edward Bluemel as Guildford Dudley, Jordan Peters as King Edward, Dominic Cooper as Lord Seymour, Anna Chancellor as Jane’s mother Lady Frances Grey and Rob Brydon as Lord Dudley, Guildford’s father.  Jim Broadbent (The Duke) plays the Duke of Leicester, Jane’s uncle.

Inspired by the book of the same name, creator Gemma Burgess is co-showrunner/executive producer, Meredith Glynn is co-showrunner/executive producer, and Laurie MacDonald and Sarah Bradshaw are executive producers. Jamie Babbit  directs five of the eight episodes and is producing director/executive producer.
