“An hour of television can change everything,” Billie Piper warns in the new trailer for Netflix’s Scoop. The upcoming film, based on true events, details the moments leading up to Prince Andrew’s 2019 BBC Newsnight interview, during which journalist Emily Maitlis grilled him on his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. The fallout from the interview led the royal to announce he would step back from public duties just days later.

Check out the trailer for Scoop below.

Here’s the official synopsis for Scoop from Netflix:

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.

“There are real crucial moments in the history of journalism that remind you of the difference that these kinds of interviews can make,” the real-life McAlister told TUDUM when discussing the film. “Journalism at its best does something quite profoundly extraordinary that nothing else can do, and this movie is in honor of that.”

Scoop stars Billie Piper as producer Sam McAlister; Gillian Anderson as journalist Emily Maitlis; Keeley Hawes as Prince Andrew’s private secretary Amanda Thirsk; Romola Garai as editor Esme Wren; and Rufus Sewell as Prince Andrew. The feature draws on McAlister’s memoir Scoops: Behind The Scenes of the BBC’s Most Shocking Interview. Peter Moffatt & Geoff Bussetil adapted the memoir and real-life events to screen. Philip Martin directs.

“It’s a film about power, privilege, and differing perspectives and how — whether in glittering palaces or high-tech newsrooms — we judge what’s true,” Martin told Netflix.

Scoop premieres on Netflix April 5.
