TORONTO, Nov. 11, 2015 /CNW/ - Addictive, low-brow, and trashy? Check, check, check. CraveTVTM announced today that all 10 episodes of Lionsgate's deliciously "bingeable" series THE ROYALS begins streaming Friday, Nov. 13, on CraveTV. Starring two of pop-culture's all-time divas, Elizabeth Hurley and Joan Collins, the series – which has viewers watching behind closed doors and craving more – joins CraveTV's additional guilty pleasures including MISTRESSES, ARMY WIVES, and GIGOLOS.
THE ROYALS was hailed by The Globe and Mail's John Doyle as "…the most deranged drama in TV history." But clearly it's a guilty pleasure for many Canadians as the first season of THE ROYALS was the #2 new series on E! in the 2014/2015 broadcast year.
THE ROYALS follows an unpredictable and dysfunctional royal family whose salacious and excessive tendencies are the perfect tabloid fodder. The campy series stars Elizabeth Hurley as Queen Helena and Joan Collins as Helena's mother, Grand Duchess Alexandra of Oxford, along with Vincent Regan as King Simon, William Moseley as Prince Liam, Alexandra Park as Princess Eleanor, and Canadian Merritt Patterson as Ophelia.
The entire first season of THE ROYALS can be devoured in 10 pleasurable hours of soapy goodness, before the Season 2 premiere on Sunday, Nov. 15 at 10 p.m. ET on E!. The series can be found in the "Dramas" and "Teen Dramas" collections on CraveTV.
