HBO has set the premiere date for “Catherine the Great,” its upcoming limited series starring Helen Mirren and Jason Clarke.
The four-part show, which is made in association with Sky, will debut Monday, Oct. 21 at 10/9c on the pay TV channel.
Here’s the official description for “Catherine the Great,” courtesy of HBO:
Starring Academy-award winner Helen Mirren (“The Queen”, “Gosford Park”, “The Last Station”) and Jason Clarke (“First Man”, “Zero Dark Thirty”, “Mudbound”) this four-part drama is set against the politically tumultuous and sexually charged court of Russian empress Catherine the Great (Mirren) who wielded supreme power throughout Russia for nearly half of the 18th century. The HBO/Sky production follows Catherine towards the end of her reign during her passionate affair with Grigory Potemkin (Clarke). Amid scandal, intrigue and immense conflict, they develop a unique and devoted relationship, overcoming their adversaries and together serving as the architects of modern-day Russia through a series of liberalizing reforms.
The series is directed by Philip Martin and written by Nigel Williams. Mirren, Martin, and Williams executive produce “Catherine the Great,” with David Thompson acting as executive producer for Origin Pictures and Charlie Pattinson and Christine Healy serving as EPs for New Pictures.

With director David Leitch’s Hobbs & Shaw now playing in theaters around the world and IMAX, a few days ago I got to talk to Helen Mirren about the movie. Since she’s done plenty of talking about why he wanted to be part of the Fast & Furiousspinoff, I had one goal when I sat down with her: to have fun.
To make that happen, I decided to ask a number of questions pitting Hobbs against Shaw: Who ruined the most takes, who has more hair, who is a better wingman, and more. After a few Hobbs vs. Shaw questions, it was time to debate who would win in a fight if Hobbs and Shaw took on some other action icons like Jason Bourne, John McClane, Rocky Balboa, Bruce Lee, Ellen Ripley, and a few others.
As you’ve seen in the trailers, in the spinoff, Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) must team up with Shaw (Jason Statham) to stop Brixton (Idris Elba), a superhuman anarchist bent on releasing a biothreat on the world. Hobbs & Shaw also stars Vanessa Kirby as Shaw’s sister, Helen Mirren as Shaw’s mother, Eiza Gonzalex, Eddie Marsan, and Cliff Curtis. The film is produced by Chris Morgan, Johnson, Statham and Hiram Garcia. The executive producers are Kelly McCormick, Dany Garcia, Steven Chasman, Ethan Smith and Ainsley Davies.
