'Anarchy in the Monarchy' is the tagline used in the promo video which sees members of a British royal family going wild.
E! has offered a sneak peek at its first original scripted series "The Royals". Elizabeth Hurley, who stars as the matriarch of a British royal family, reminds someone in the trailer that they're "not a normal family." The video offers glimpses of a wild party and some members of the royal family getting drunk.
The show follows a modern-day royal family as they live life in the public eye. Hurley plays Queen Helena, described as a woman who has the power, beauty and intelligence to get what she wants. She's keen on controlling the public image of her famous family. King Simon (Vincent Regan) is the family's moral compass, but is quick to place his family over the people he rules over.
William Moseley plays Liam, the youngest son of the king and queen. He suddenly finds the spotlight on him when he becomes the heir apparent to the throne. Like any young man, Liam enjoys the perks of being a sought after eligible bachelor, but enters a relationship with a young American woman whose morals cause her to butt heads with the monarchy. Alexandra Park stars as Eleanor, the sole daughter in the royal family. She's constant tabloid fodder.
Production for the series is set to begin in June for a 2015 premiere.
