The creative team behind popular period dramas The White Queen and its sequel series The White Princess are joining forces again to tell another Tudor-family story.

Premium cable Starz announced its new limited series The Spanish Princess, based on two more of best-selling author Philippa Gregory’s historical fiction novels. The series will adapt Gregory’s The Constant Princess and The King’s Curse to tell the story of King Henry VIII’s first wife, Catherine of Aragon. Much of her life will probably be familiar to viewers, as she was the woman thrown over and then divorced in favor of the infamous Anne Boleyn. But Catherine’s life story contains a great deal more drama than that.
