The Regime

The Regime tells the story of one year within the walls of the palace of a modern European regime as it begins to unravel.

The Regime is streaming exclusively on Sky Atlantic and Now TV!

Kate Winslet, Matthias Schoenaerts, Andrea Riseborough, Martha Plimpton and Hugh Grant star in The Regime, a darkly comedic six-episode series, streaming exclusively on Sky Atlantic and Now TV. Filming in the region was done with locations and crewing support from Screen Yorkshire’s Film Office.

The satirical series tells the story of life within the walls of a modern authoritarian regime as it begins to unravel. After not leaving the palace for quite some time, Chancellor Elena Vernham (Kate Winslet) has grown increasingly paranoid and unstable when she turns to a volatile soldier, Herbert Zubak (Matthias Schoenaerts), as an unlikely confidant. As Zubak’s influence over the chancellor continues to grow, Elena’s attempts to expand her power eventually result in both the palace and the country fracturing around her.

“With a spectacular, funny and chilling Kate Winslet as the imperious chancellor of an unnamed, fictional Central European country, the captivating series is a comedy that never ignores the real-life, global dramas beneath it all.” ★★★★  – Caryn James, BBC

“Winslet is a dark-comic delight…”James Poniewozik, The New York Times

Filming in Yorkshire was an absolute delight, and the help and support you get in the region is second to none. The locations team were willing to push the boundaries and support us in every way possible.
