Hidden between the lines of the history books is the story of Mary Stuart, the young woman the world would come to know as Mary, Queen of Scots. The teenage Mary is already a headstrong monarch – beautiful, passionate and poised at the very beginning of her tumultuous rise to power. Arriving in France with four close friends as her ladies-in-waiting, Mary has been sent to secure Scotland’s strategic alliance by formalizing her arranged engagement to the French king’s dashing son, Prince Francis.
But the match isn’t signed and sealed, it depends more on politics, religion and secret agendas than affairs of the heart. Prince Francis is intrigued by the fiery Scot, but like most young men, he resists the idea of settling down into marriage, especially when he has a history with a lady of the court and his own point of view on the wisdom of an alliance with Scotland. Still, an attraction between Mary and Francis is ignited.
The pilot for the debut series – (which will see its first airing on October 17, 2013) – was mostly said to be have been shot in Ireland, with the leading roles then played by Australian, Canadian, and English actors. However, a large part of the filming for the first series will take place in Canada.
If you’re looking to watch the show when it airs, you’ll find it on CW at 9/8c (which is the time slot just after The Vampire Diaries).
