Through the first episode of the new series, “Medici Bitch,” Catherine justifies her acts and teaches her new servant, Rahima, the lessons she’s learned in flashbacks, according to the synopsis. “At the age of 14, Catherine, an orphan, is married into the court of the French aristocracy.”
As a commoner, she is expected to have many children by her uncle, Pope Clement, who has brokered her marriage with a big dowry and a geopolitical alliance in return. On the night of her wedding, Catherine learns that her husband has fallen in love with a lady-in-waiting twice her age, Diane de Poitiers.
Catherine must swiftly learn who she can trust – both among her personal retinue of courtiers and the members of the royal court – while outmaneuvering anybody who underestimates her drive to survive at any cost, as her future is suddenly uncertain and she has little prospect of conceiving.
Catherine de Medici: Renaissance Queen of France by Leonie Frieda is the inspiration for The Serpent Queen. Stacie Passon will direct several episodes and act as an executive producer alongside Justin Haythe, who wrote and produced the show.
