People.com reports that TV icon Joan Collins will return to the small screen to guest star on E!'s first scripted series THE ROYALS. The drama, cet in London, centers on a modern-day fictionalized British royal family.
According to the report, Collins will portray the Grand Duchess of Oxford, who is the mother of Queen Helena, played by Elizabeth Hurley. Her character is described as "the only woman in the world more formidable and imposing" than her daughter, the Grand Duchess will enter the show with "an entourage and an agenda."
The 81-year-old actress commented exclusively to PEOPLE, "I am delighted to be part of this very entertaining project."
From Lionsgate TV, The Royals inhabit a world of opulence and regal tradition that caters to any and every desire, but one that also comes with a price tag of duty, destiny and intense public scrutiny. The sweeping series, which is set to premiere in 2015, is executive produced, written and directed by Mark Schwahn ("One Tree Hill"), and executive produced by Brian Robbins and Joe Davola ("One Tree Hill," "Smallville").
