Oscar and Emmy winner Kate Winslet is teaming up with HBO to star in the limited series ‘The Palace,’ Winslet will also be an executive producer of the drama, which HBO has ordered to series.
The Palace chronicles a year inside an authoritarian regime as it begins to unravel. HBO Programming executive vp Francesca Orsi said in a statement: “We are honored to be working with this incredibly talented group of filmmakers on ‘The Palace.’ The notion that Kate Winslet and Stephen Frears, two of our industry’s leading lights (who — remarkably — have never collaborated before now), are joining forces to bring Will Tracy’s wildly original, prescient, and dazzling scripts to life at HBO is a dream come true for us.”
The Palace is the second HBO project Winslet has signed onto recently; she is also set to star in and executive produce the limited series Trust, based on Hernan Diaz’s novel.
