The show is described as: "A single camera series on a grand scale set in the fictitious, contemporary court of Henry IX, King of the United Kingdom."
The creators explain: "This is the almost universal story of a middle-aged man trapped in his life... except this one just happens to be the reigning monarch."
Simon Lupton, Commissioning Editor for UKTV, comments: "These commissions demonstrate our commitment to working with the brightest and the best, ranging from welcoming the legendary Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais back to British TV, to exciting emerging writers, all of whom have produced classic stand-out comedy characters placed firmly in the 21st century.
"We are offering our audience refreshing and enticing shows they can relate to and fall in love with. It genuinely feels like we have something for everyone, and we can't wait to share them with our viewers."
