Gary Janetti’s Instagram account is coming to television!

HBO Max has greenlighted The Prince, an animated satire based on Janetti’s Instagram account which pokes fun at the British royals through the eyes of Prince George, the eldest child of Prince William and Kate. 

Family Guy producer Janetti will write and executive produce the series. He will also voice star alongside Orlando Bloom, Condola Rashad, Lucy Punch, Tom Hollander, Alan Cumming, Frances De La Tour, and Iwan Rheon.

“I’m thrilled to be working at HBO Max and bringing them yet another series about a family ruthlessly fighting for the throne,” said Janetti.

“We’re so excited to bring the world Gary’s created on Instagram over to HBO Max, where our viewers can discover what his Instagram fans already know – that George can be hilarious, shocking, and surprisingly sweet,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content for HBO Max. “We can’t wait to see what Gary does with a bigger canvas to paint on than just a 1:1 square.”
