Starz’s new historical series ‘The Serpent Queen’ has a bit of edge to it. The royal drama is an adaptation of a book which retells the rise of Catherine de Medici to Queen of France during the 1500s.

Actress Samantha Morton expresses that women such as de Medici need to be highlighted just as much as men.

The show also stars Colm Meaney, Kiruna Stamell, Barry Atsma, Alex Heath, Amrita Acharia, Enzo and Cilenti.

‘The Serpent Queen’ its available on the Starz app and all Starz streaming and on-demand platforms and internationally on the Lionsgate+ premium streaming platform.
