E! orders ‘The Royals’ as first scripted series

By Chelsea Lewis ,

The pop culture-driven E! Network has decided on their first original scripted drama series; The Royals. The Royals will be starring Elizabeth Hurley and will tell the story of a fictional British royal family.

The show will air as an hour-long drama every week on the network.

Mark Schwahn will be working on the production on the show, which will start shooting in the U.K. this year and will air on E! next year. The show is being produced under the Lionsgate TV production banner, Variety reported.

Brian Robbins and Joe Davola will be executive producers on The Royals along with Schwahn. Schwahn has worked with Robbins and Dayola before on the popular show One Tree Hill.

Deadline also reported that E! is working on an additional scripted series.

On the heels of E!, a similar channel Bravo is also working on scripted TV shows. The network recently greenlighted a project titled Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce.
