Dive into the intrigue of 18th century French royalty with the new period drama, Marie Antoinette, which chronicles the infamous historical figure’s beginnings from a young dauphine to the last queen of France.
The new drama series premieres 9 p.m. Sunday, March 19 on PBS Wisconsin and streams on the free PBS Video App!
Set at the height of the “ancien régime,” the new series follows a young Marie Antoinette as she learns the rules and secrets of the court and attempts to recreate Versailles in her image: free, independent and feminist. But her successes provoke jealousy and rivalry, and her royal enemies will do everything they can to bring her down.
The eight-episode series stars Emilia Schüle (Berlin Dance School) as the title character, with Louis Cunningham (Bridgerton) as the dauphin of France, Louis XVI.
