Get ready for a war that won’t be won on the battlefield.

“The White Queen,” based on the bestselling historical novel series “The Cousins’ War” by Philippa Gregory, is coming to Starz this August. The 10-episode drama, a co-production with the BBC, is a period drama set against the backdrop of England’s Wars of the Roses. Featured in the cast are Max Irons (“Red Riding Hood”), Amanda Hale (“The Crimson Petal & The White”), James Frain (“True Blood”), newcomers Rebecca Ferguson (playing the titular “White Queen”) and Faye Marsay and Oscar nominee Janet McTeer (“Albert Nobbs”).

The first teaser trailer for the series has just been released, available above.

Do you think “The White Queen” will reign supreme this summer?
