They will be the small screen adaptations of the bard's HENRY VI drama (in two parts) and RICHARD III!

In the last part, the TV movie on RICHARD III Benedict Cumberbatch plays the evil King Richard who plots his path to rule and layers that path with bodies of friend and foe alike, always wonderful Keeley Hawes is Queen Elizabeth (the star of WHITE QUEEN series from two years ago), her Cinematic Highness Judi Dench is King's mother Cecily Duchess of York, while Phoebe Fox is Queen Anne.
