The video features Emmy and Golden Globe winner Gillian Anderson starring as real-life journalist Emily Maitlis. The film is scheduled to make its debut on April 5.

“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,” reads the synopsis. “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, the series takes us inside the story, with the women who would stop at nothing to get it.
