The eight-part series, created by DC Moore, will tell the true story of Mary Villiers, played by Julianne Moore, who coached her son, George, on how to seduce King James I and become his lover. 

Through scheming and deceiving those around them, the pair rose from lowly beginnings to become the richest, most titled and powerful mother and son England had ever seen.
