Trailer unveils the authoritarian leader and her regime
The teaser which dropped a few hours ago shows Kate Winslet as a stern European leader, trying to hold her grip on the regime, along with her most trustworthy soldier, Matthias Schoenaert.
In the nearly 2-minute trailer, we get a brief of the political agenda, where Kate Winslet as the American chancellor is trying to navigate ways to tighten her grip before her political kingdom crumbles to defeat.
The 48-year-old actor shines as a charismatic leader while dealing with pressure and moral dilemmas, and the only person she trusts is her loyal subordinate in Matthias Schoenaert.
When and where to watch
The limited series is expected to conclude in six episodes with the show streaming on HBO Max, simultaneously as it premieres on the network on March 3.
Cast and Plot
Directed by Stephen Frears and Jessica Hobbs – The Regime brings a political drama with satirical humor, narrating the ‘rise to power’ struggle during the one year time span in the palace of a modern European regime. The short trailer also hints at dark humor at a few moments, like the scene in which Winslet’s husband is also restricted from meeting her without official orders. The dialogue exchange between Schoenaert and Guillaume Gallienne depicts satire.

Will Tracy, who is the talented mind behind the prominent series, Succession and The Menu, helms The Regime, while also serving as the showrunner. The executive producers alongside Winslet include Stephen Frears, Frank Rich, Tracey Seaward, and Jessica Hobbs.
