Another series about the British royal family is coming. 

Multiple outlets report that HBO Max has greenlighted The Prince an animated series satirizing the British royals. 

The series hails from Family Guy producer Gary Janetti who is also voice starring in the satire. The voice cast also includes Orlando Bloom, Condola Rashad, Lucy Punch, Tom Hollander, Alan Cumming, Frances De La Tour, and Iwan Rheon.

The series is based on Janetti’s Instagram account, which pokes full at the royals. 

“I’m thrilled to be working at HBO Max and bringing them yet another series about a family ruthlessly fighting for the throne,” said Janetti.

“We’re so excited to bring the world Gary’s created on Instagram over to HBO Max, where our viewers can discover what his Instagram fans already know – that George can be hilarious, shocking, and surprisingly sweet,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content for HBO Max. “We can’t wait to see what Gary does with a bigger canvas to paint on than just a 1:1 square.”
