Susan Sarandon and Anna Friel are headed to the small screen in Fox's midseason drama Monarch. Sarandon plays "tough as nails" country music queen Dottie Cantrell Roman, who has founded a dynasty with her husband, Albie. But when truth threatens the Romans' reign, heir apparent Nicolette "Nicky" Roman (Friel) will do anything to protect their crown.
Monarch hails from creator/EP Melissa London Hilfers, executive producer/showrunner Michael Rauch, and executive producers Gail Berman, Hend Baghdady, and Jason Owen. The multi-generational country music soap will debut in a two-night event, starting Jan. 30, following the NFC Championship, and continuing on Feb. 1.
