"My Lady Jane" spins a hugely entertaining yarn from the premise, "What if young Lady Jane Grey dodged the executioner’s axe?" Taking more historical liberties than Henry the VIII did wives, this eight-part series features an incredible ensemble cast in a saucy reimagining that’s guaranteed to have viewers losing their heads.

Taking inspiration from the YA novel of the same name, Emily Bader plays Lady Jane Grey. While history recalls the ill-fated 16-year-old having her head lopped off by Mary Tudor, "My Lady Jane" proposes a radical alternative: one in which the free-spirited noblewoman goes on to live, love, and have a generally bawdy time of it all.

Executive produced by Meredith Glynn ("The Boys") and Jamie Babbit ("Only Murders in the Building"), this fantastical addendum to the life of Lady Jane finds her reluctantly married off to Lord Guildford (Edward Bluemel), a mysterious rogue who just happens to morph into a horse at dusk.

Boasting an excellent cast that includes Oscar-winner Jim Broadbent, Dominic Cooper, and comedian Rob Brydon, "My Lady Jane" is an irreverent romp through the Tudor period, and just a little bit filthy to boot.
