The miniseries is based on author Benjamin Woolley’s 2017 novel ‘The King’s Assassin’, which tells the real-life story of Mary Villiers, Countess of Buckingham, and her son George Villiers, 1st Duke of Buckingham.


In the show, Moore’s Mary Villiers “molds her charismatic son” George, who is portrayed by Galitzine, to seduce the King James VI of Scotland (Tony Curran). Thereafter, George becomes the King’s lover, and the mother and son rise “from humble beginnings to become the richest, most titled and influential players the English court had ever seen, and the King’s most trusted advisors,” as per a series description via W Magazine.

Moreover, a synopsis describes the series as “an audacious historical psychodrama about a treacherous mother and son who schemed, seduced and killed to conquer the Court of England and the bed of King James I.”

  1. I hope it’s as gay as the trailer suggests.

    James I, who has been described by historian Michael B. Young as ‘the most prominent homosexual figure in the early modern period’.
