On Friday, February 10, Amazon’s original period drama series, The Collection, will premiere all seven episodes exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the US.
Already released to Prime members in the UK, the Amazon Original Series, from award-winning writer and creator Oliver Goldstick (Ugly Betty, Pretty Little Liars), is a gripping family saga where scandal and betrayal plague the Sabine family’s relentless pursuit of success. Set in a post-war Parisian fashion house, the Sabines have been tasked with restoring the city’s supremacy as the haute couture capital. The series explores the grit behind the glamour of a rising business run by two clashing brothers. Paul, played by Richard Coyle (Coupling, Crossbones), is the face and the business sense while Claude, played by Tom Riley (Da Vinci’s Demons), is the creative genius. They’re nothing without each other but their rivalry, deception and the hateful bargains they made to survive the Nazi occupation could threaten to topple this “first family” of fashion’s empire at any moment. The season explores the constant question, will their tenuous relationship and the ghosts of their past destroy their meteoric success?
The Collection also stars Frances de la Tour (Hugo, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), Mamie Gummer (Ricki and the Flash, The Good Wife) and Jenna Thiam (The Returned). Joining Goldstick is world-renowned creative team including Emmy Award-winning director Dearbhla Walsh (Penny Dreadful, The Tudors), BAFTA award-winning producer Selwyn Roberts (Parade’s End, Strike Back), Executive Producers Anne Thomopoulos (Rome, Borgia) and Kate Croft (Murderland), production designer Alison Dominitz (Casanova, Hotel Splendide), costume designers Chattoune & Fab (Dheepan, Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky) and casting director Rachel Freck (The Go-Between, Life in Squares).
Amazon Studios acquired North American rights to The Collection from Lookout Point, who produced the series with Artis Pictures Production and co-produced with Federation Entertainment MFP with the participation of France Televisions for BBC Worldwide Ltd.”
