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.
