Netflix Show “The Crown” Looks as Amazing as it Costs 2016-09-28 11-53-14

Netflix’s new original drama The Crown, which chronicles the early days of Queen Elizabeth’s reign, is reported to cost $156 million! Which puts it at the top of the heap for production costs by a lot. And you can see why in the newly released trailer.

Charting the early days of Queen Elizabeth II (played by Claire Foy), the show tackles the struggles the new monarch had in establishing herself in a man’s world. Everyone is decked out in furs, crowns and gowns, and all of the action takes place in bejeweled castles that could not have been cheap to rent.  In addition to Foy, John Lithgow stars as Winston Churchill and Matt Smith (a former Doctor Who) plays Prince Phillip.

The Crown will be available to stream November 4.
