The trailer is full of suspense, romance, and country music.
What is ‘Monarque’ about?
This trailer was quite a wild ride! Fox’s official description of the show reads: “The reigning king of country music Albie Roman, along with his incredibly talented and tough-as-nails wife, country music queen Dottie Cantrell Roman, have created a country music dynasty, but even though the Roman name is synonymous with authenticity, the very foundation of their success is a lie. When their reign as country royalty is in jeopardy, heiress to the crown Nicolette ‘Nicky ‘ Roman will stop at nothing to protect his family’s legacy, while securing his own quest for stardom, alongside his brother Luke and sister Gigi.”
Who’s in the cast?
In brief: The cast of Monarch is charged! The series’ lead role is legendary Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon, who plays Dottie Roman. Sarandon hardly needs an introduction, but you’ve known her for Thelma and Louise, Bull Durham, Stepmother and walking dead man.
But she’s not the only female lead: Anna Friel is also set to star as Dottie’s ambitious daughter, Nicolette Roman. You’ve probably seen Friel in grow daisies, The girlfriend experience Where Broken.
