Elizabeth Hurley Gets Royally Bitchy in ‘The Royals’ Sneak Peek (Video)

Watch Hurley play a queen who won’t accept failure in glimpse at E!’s first scripted series

Elizabeth Hurley gets regal in E!’s first scripted series “The Royals” — but don’t expect any stuffy, drinking-tea-with-the-pinky extended kind of action.

The series — executive produced, written and directed by “One Tree Hill” alum Mark Schwahn — follows a fictional, modern-day British royal family, with Hurley’s Queen Helena at the center. And she’s not the retiring type.

According to E!’s description of the character, Helena “has the power, beauty and intelligence to get anything and everything she wants. And failure isn’t an option, especially when it comes to protecting her family’s image, which she will stop at nothing to control.”

Or, as Hurley puts it in the sneak peek below, “I’m just a bitch with money and power … but I do make it look good.”
