The White Queen With Two Versions

BBC Costume Series With More Nudity in the US

The British channel BBC is widely known for high profile costume series and entertainment. US channels like to apply cuts in order to shorten British series for their audience or airing schedue. But The White Queen shows that the other way around is possible, as well. The BBC series consists of 10 parts, is inspired by the historical novels by Philippa Gregory and was co-produced by the pay tv channel Starz (who also brought us Spartacus).
