‘Scoop’: Prince Andrew & Emily Maitlis Do Battle In Netflix Trailer For Feature About Notorious ‘Newsnight’ Interview

Full trailer for Prince Andrew feature Scoop has landed.

The highly-anticipated Netflix movie tells the story of that notorious Newsnight interview, the one that saw the disgraced prince humiliated over his connections to Jeffrey Epstein and more generally over his conduct, birthing never-forgotten lines about Pizza Express and an inability to sweat.

Today’s trailer showcases Gillian Anderson as interviewer Emily Maitlis, Rufus Sewell as the prince and Billie Piper playing Sam McAlister, the BBC producer who secured the interview and wrote the book that the feature is based on.

Last week, Anderson and Sewell both revealed that they had initially turned down the roles, with The Crown star Anderson saying she thought she would “undoubtedly fail” if she took it on. “The opportunity to play her was a privilege and was daunting,” added Anderson.

Scoop is written by Peter Moffat, and co-produced by The Lighthouse and Voltage TV. A separate Amazon Prime Video series is also being made about the interview, with Michael Sheen playing the prince, while Channel 4 aired a comedy musical last year.
