My Lady Jane

Gird your loins for the tragic tale of Lady Jane Grey, the young Tudor noblewoman who was Queen of England for nine days and then beheaded, back in good ol’ 1553. We’re retelling history the way it should have happened: the damsel in distress saves herself. This is an epic tale of true love and high adventure set in an alt-universe of action, history, fantasy, comedy, romance, and rompy-pomp.

A witty revisionist take on Tudor history, My Lady Jane created a soundscape as unique as its storytelling by utilizing some of the UK’s biggest up-and-coming female-fronted artists to cover iconic British songs in their own unique voice and style. My Lady Jane co-showrunners, GEMMA BURGESS and MEREDITH GLYNN, state, “We love how the covers work in the show – they tell the audience this is England in the past, but not as you know it,” when speaking about their choice to use music within the show. 

With contributions from BLACK HONEY, CHINCHILLA, GOAT GIRL, GRIFF, HOTWAX, KATY J PEARSON, LIZZIE ESAU, POPPY AJUDHA and YONAKA, the series’ soundtrack puts a modern, fresh spin on classic rock anthems – listen here.  Series music supervisor, CIARA ELWIS, curated the female-fronted artists and explains, “The female characters in our show are often not treated with any respect or given the place in the world that they deserve, but they don’t let that get to them – they’re constantly fighting for something more. I think all of the artists we’ve used have that feel in their vocals, of taking up space and refusing to back down. The songs aren’t ‘nice’, they’ve all got a bite to them, which is what we really love about Jane too.”
