OK, it’s not the Emma Frost or White Queen we’re thinking of (however, an Emma Frost TV show would be nice), but BBC One’s “The White Queen” will be a ten-part tv series in 2013 based off Phillipa Gregory‘s novel “The Cousin’s War.”
“The White Queen” is set during the War of the Roses in 1464. Edward IV marries a widow and commoner, so that’s when the crap hits the ceiling and the women involved begin their quest for the throne.
BBC summarizes the atmosphere of the TV show as this:
The White Queen is the thrilling story of the women caught up in the ongoing conflict for the throne – they are some of the most ruthless players in history and will stop at nothing to support their own causes and those of the ones they love.
The most bizarre part? It will be scripted by a writer named Emma Frost. Her name is buried under Google searches, thanks to Marvel’s Emma Frost claiming the top spot, so there’s a good chance the real life Emma Frost knows of the fictional Emma Frost!
