Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort, and Anne Neville are the focus of the BBC’s The White Queen. The series is based on Philippa Gregory’s best selling historical novel series The Cousins’ War, and follows the women’s perspective during the Wars of the Roses. Coincidentally enough, The White Queen was written by a woman named Emma Frost. The 10-episodes series will air this summer on BBC One and in August on Starz in the U.S.
