Queen Victoria’s Early Life to Get the Period Drama Treatment From ITV

In their ongoing search for an heir apparent to global hit costume drama Downton Abbey, which is ending after its sixth season, ITV has decided to greenlight a new dramatic adaptation of the life of one of England’s greatest monarchs, Queen Victoria.

This ambitious eight-part drama – titled simply Victoriawill focus on the beginning of her lengthy 63-year reign. Queen Victoria ascended to the throne when she was just eighteen years old, so, happily there’s plenty of story there.
