‘The Regime’ Teaser Trailer: Kate Winslet Leads An Entire Country In HBO Limited Series Coming In March

While fans continue to hope Kate Winslet returns to her Emmy-winning role in a second season of Mare of Easttown, they do have something else from her to look forward. And to be honest, this one looks just as promising. The Regime is a new HBO limited series in which Winslet plays the leader of her own country. That sounds about right. Give Winslet all of the power!

The Regime finds Winslet as the Chancellor of a European country, fighting to maintain her base of power while the world around her crumbles. As if the idea of Winslet as a total boss isn’t enticing enough, the cast is incredible with Matthias Schoenaerts, Guillaume Gallienne, Andrea Riseborough, Martha Plimpton, and Hugh Grant co-starring. Damn.

There’s a lot of talent behind the scenes, as well. Acting as writer and showrunner is Will Tracy, known for his work on Succession and the culinary horror-comedy The Menu. Directing episodes are Stephen Frears (Philomena) and Jessica Hobbs (Emmy winner for The Crown).

The Regime hits HBO and Max on March 3rd.
