Update: A new trailer for Scoop, the upcoming film drama based on Prince Andrew’s calamitous BBC Newsnight interview from 2019, has been uploaded to the internet.

Here it is:

Our original story follows…

12th February 2024: Gillian Anderson and Rufus Sewell headline Philip Martin’s new Netflix film as Emily Maitlis and Prince Andrew. 

The film depicts the shocking BBC Newsnight interview, which took place in 2019 and resulted in a PR nightmare for Buckingham Palace. 

During the interview, Prince Andrew was asked about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein and alleged sexual assault against a young woman. Prince Andrew’s alibi was memorably being at a Pizza Express in Woking during the alleged incident. 

Take a look at the Scoop trailer below. 

Billie Piper plays producer Sam McAlister, whose book the film is based on. The film will also follow her attempts to negotiate with Buckingham Palace to organise the interview. 

Additionally, Romola Garai plays Newsnight editor Esme Wren, Keeley Hawes appears as Prince Andrew’s former private secretary Amanda Thirsk and Connor Swindells plays photojournalist Jae Donnelly. Donnelly captured the famous photo of Prince Andrew walking in Central Park with Jeffrey Epstein. Peter Moffat and Geoff Bussetil are in charge of the script.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Inspired by real events, Scoop is the inside account of the tenacious journalism that landed an earthshattering interview – Prince Andrew’s infamous BBC Newsnight appearance. From the tension of producer Sam McAlister’s high stakes negotiations with Buckingham Palace, all the way to Emily Maitlis’ jaw dropping, forensic showdown with the Prince, Scoop takes us inside the story, with the women who would stop at nothing to get it. To get an interview this big, you have to be bold.

Prime Video is also producing its own TV show about the scandalous interview. Julian Jarrold is directing a three-part series, titled A Very Royal Scandal, with Ruth Wilson playing Maitlis while Michael Sheen playing Prince Andrew. 

Scoop will hit Netflix on 5th April.
