CATHERINE & POTEMKIN

Power-hungry and passionate while pursuing a singular vision. One of history’s most exciting women.

The Russian Czarina‘s thrilling and extraordinary life will be told in an exciting, complex and visually sumptuous series. It‘s a story about the Age of Enlightenment, the struggle for power and the grand passion of a brilliant and seductive woman ahead of her time: Yekaterina Alexeevna or Catherine II, who went down in history as Catherine the Great. 

 

In the tradition of successes like “The Tudors”, “Game of Thrones”, “The Borgias” or the “Elizabeth”- films, the international co-produced series wants to offer a fresh and exciting take on one of Europe’s most fascinating periods and the unique personality of the woman who helped to shape it. 

 

Award winning writer Heinrich Hadding (“Pope Joan”) will write the screenplay for “Catherine The Great“.
