HBO presents, in association with Sky, the four-part limited series CATHERINE THE GREAT, debuting MONDAY, OCT. 21 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT).

This limited series will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.

Oscar®-winner Helen Mirren stars in HBO’s latest historical drama, “Catherine the Great,” as the tumultuous monarch and politician who ruled the Russian empire and transformed its place in the world in the 18th century. Over the course of four one-hour parts, the enthralling limited series charts Catherine’s reign as the intelligent, resourceful and utterly determined Empress who fights off threats to her crown, wages war with the Ottoman Empire and expands Russia’s borders as far as the Black Sea and Crimea, turning the nation into a great global power. But more than a political success story against all odds, CATHERINE THE GREAT is a sweeping epic that follows the love affair between Catherine and Russian military leader Grigory Potemkin (Jason Clarke), the most extraordinary woman and man of their age, who formed a singular and powerful relationship that helped shape the future of Russian politics.
