Amazon Studios Hires Cat Lynch From 'Big Brother' Producer Initial For UK Unscripted Role
Created by Gemma Burgess (Brooklyn Girls trilogy), based on the 2016 YA historical fiction novels, My Lady Jane imagines the rise and reign of Lady Jane Grey (Bader). When her ambitious mother sells Jane’s hand to the highest bidder, Jane is dismayed to discover that her dreaded husband-to-be, Guildford Dudley (Bluemel), is an infuriatingly attractive stranger with a dark secret, one that has the potential to get them both killed. But there are greater conspiracies afoot, like a plot to murder her cousin, King Edward (Peters), and throw the entire kingdom into chaos. A sharp-tongued, warm-hearted story full of romance, adventure, and fantasy, My Lady Jane reveals that true love is real, people are not always what they seem, and even doomed heroines can save themselves.
Burgess and Meredith Glynn (The Boys) serve as co-showrunners and executive producers. Jamie Babbit (Only Murders in the Building) is directing five of the eight episodes and is producing director/executive producer, and Sarah Bradshaw (Citadel) and Laurie MacDonald (The Ring, Zorro, Men In Black, Gladiator) are executive producers.
