Queen Elizabeth’s Secret Agents: 3-part marathon

Sun., Mar. 10 at 7, 8, and 9 p.m.

This series uncovers the secret state that helped keep Queen Elizabeth in power for over 40 years. During a time when Britain was divided, unstable and violent, the world’s first secret service was born. Run by William and Robert Cecil, this father and son team had the duty of protecting the Queen and the country.

William Cecil, Queen Elizabeth’s spy master, intercepts a conspiracy to assassinate the Queen. When he discovers that Elizabeth’s own cousin Mary Queen of Scots is behind the plot, he lays a trap to capture and execute her.

Elizabeth’s enemies grow in strength, but her spy master Robert Cecil also fights an enemy within. An ambitious aristocrat is trying to take over his network. At stake is control over the aging queen and the power to choose the next King of England.

England has a new monarch, King James I, and Elizabeth’s former spy master Robert Cecil faces his toughest test. A group of religious extremists plans to blow up the Houses of Parliament with the king inside, what we now call the Gunpowder Plot.
