God save the Queen, indeed. Netflix has released the full trailer for its upcoming original series The Crown, and you're going to want to watch it immediately. 

The ten-episode series is based on Peter Morgan’s award-winning play The Audience, and is meant to tell the inside story of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. The first season of The Crown focuses on Elizabeth as a 25-year-old newlywed, faced with the daunting prospect of leading the world’s most famous monarchy while forging a relationship with legendary Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill. The British Empire is in decline, the political world is in disarray, and a young woman takes the throne. In short: A new era is dawning.

Period Crime Drama ‘Peaky Blinders’ Comes to Netflix

It would seem that Netflix is becoming quite the home for British television in America these days – after the online streaming service brought contemporary crime dramas The Fall and Happy Valley across the pond, the site has now moved on to more a bit of period crime fare.

Netflix has locked down exclusive rights as the US distributor for the popular British drama Peaky Blinders, a six-part factually-inspired series that follows the story of the Shelby family in Birmingham in 1919. These were the leaders of the violent Peaky Blinders gang, whose members were notorious for sewing razor blades into their hats – which also happens to be where their nickname comes from.

Created by Steven Knight, the drama stars Cillian Murphy, Sam Neill, Helen McCrory and Annabelle Wallis. Watch a trailer for the first season’s Netflix debut below
