The British Minister of Culture asks Netflix to include a message in “The Crown”.
The government wants the platform to explain to viewers that the series is a fiction.
“The Crown” keeps painting.
It is one of the most important Netflix productions and the fourth season continues to be synonymous with success. But “The Crown” is increasingly a controversial off-screen phenomenon. In addition to reactions from members of the royal family who questioned the veracity of the story, there is now a new demand at the request of UK Secretary of Culture Oliver Dowden.
In an interview published in Mail on Sunday on November 29th, the official stressed that Netflix should include a warning before each episode of the series detailing the balance of power in the Crown and Downing Street being represented.
“It’s a wonderful fiction, but like other television productions, Netflix should be clear from the start that it is exactly that,” said Oliver Dowden, confirming that he will formally ask Netflix to include such a notice.
It should be noted that Princess Diana’s brother Charles Spencer stated in a recent interview with “ITV” that the series should have such a warning stating that it is inspired by real events – but that it is a fiction is. “Because then everyone would understand [a série] It’s a drama. “
Each season of “The Crown” spanned several years and relevant events in the history of the United Kingdom during the reign of Isabel II, as well as relationships between members of the monarchy and various governments. The creators and producers have repeated that the series is taking options for narrative reasons without the goal of being a documentary. Still, the topic of what is truth or fiction has followed the entire series, as NiT explained in an article on the subject.
