Netflix releases trailers for 'The Crown', 'Marseilles' and 'Marco Polo'

The streaming platform has announced the premiere dates for the shows

Netflix has released trailers for two new in-house produced series, ‘The Crown’ and ‘Marseilles’.

‘The Crown’, which is due to premiere in November, is a drama about the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II. It has been produced by Andy Harries and written by Peter Morgan, both of who worked on the 2006 film ‘The Queen’, staring Helen Mirren.

The cast includes Claire Foy, Matt Smith, John Lithgow, Victoria Hamilton, Jared Harris, Vanessa Kirby, Dame Eileen Atkins and more.

The second addition to Netflix’s growing catalogue of original television series is ‘Marseilles’, a non-English drama about the clash of politics and ambition in the French city’s mayoral election.

The series will star Gérard Depardieu, Benoît Magimel, Géraldine Pailhas, Nadia Farès, Stéphane Caillard, Jean-René Privat, Guillaume Arnault, Hedi Bouchenafa, Carolina Jurczak and Nassim Si Ahmed. It begins streaming on May 5.

Netflix also announced details of the second season of ‘Marco Polo’, a series based around the adventures of the 13th-century Italian explorer.

The new season will continue to follow Polo's experience among members of Kublai Khan during the reign of the Mongol empire. It returns on July 1.

Netflix recently announced that its early adopters in the UK will face a price increase if they wish to keep HD streaming abilities.
