The Crown, a Netflix original series produced by Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Televsion, tells the inside story of Queen Elizabeth II’s early reign, as the fragile social order established after the Second World War breaks apart. Based on the award-winning play The Audience, the series reunited creator/writer Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon), with director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) and producer Andy Harries.
Beginning with soldiers in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces fighting an illegal war in Egypt, and ending with the downfall of her third Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan, after a devastating scandal, the second season bears witness to the end of the age of deference, and ushers in the revolutionary era of the 1960s.
The Crown continues to chronicle the major political and global events that have defined and shaped the second half of the twentieth century – a series that is unprecedented in its scale, ambition and creative vision.
