Netflix has released the teaser trailer for Scoop, which tells the inside story of the infamous Prince Andrew interview on Newsnight.
Based on former Newsnight producer Sam McAlister's memoir, Scoop follows McAlister's negotiations with Buckingham Palace through to Emily Maitlis's interview with the Duke of York in November 2019.
The trailer, which you can watch above, doesn't contain much of the interview itself, but it ends with Emily Maitlis and Prince Andrew sitting down to begin as she says, "Your Royal Highness..."
We now also know that Scoop will be released on Netflix on Friday, April 5.
Scoop stars Gillian Anderson as Emily Maitlis, Billie Piper as Newsnight producer Sam McAlister, Rufus Sewell as Prince Andrew, Romola Garai as Newsnight editor Esme Wren and Keeley Hawes as Prince Andrew's former private secretary Amanda Thirsk.
The cast is rounded out by Connor Swindells as photographer Jae Donnelly (who took a photo of Prince Andrew walking in Central Park with Jeffrey Epstein), Charity Wakefield as Princess Beatrice and Lia Williams as Fran Unsworth, the BBC's former director of news.
Peter Moffat and Geoff Bussetil adapted McAlister's memoir for the screen, with Scoop being directed by Philip Martin.
"I want to put the audience inside the breathtaking sequence of events that led to the interview with Prince Andrew – to tell a story about a search for answers, in a world of speculation and varying recollections," Martin previously told TUDUM.
Scoop joins an impressive line-up of Netflix original movies in 2024 which also features Jennifer Lopez sci-fi movie Atlas, Taron Egerton's new thriller Carry On and Cameron Diaz's long-awaited acting return in comedy Back in Action.
The movie is not the only time we'll see a dramatisation of Prince Andrew's infamous Newsnight interview.
There's also the upcoming series A Very Royal Scandal which sees Michael Sheen take on the role of Prince Andrew, with Ruth Wilson playing Emily Maitlis.
Scoop is released on Netflix on April 5.
