Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Netflix is teasing the new film Scoop.

The streaming service shared first-look photos for the movie Monday featuring Rufus Sewell and Gillian Anderson.

Scoop is based on the Sam McAlister book Scoops: Behind the Scenes of the BBC's Most Shocking Interview.

The film revisits Prince Andrew's televised 2019 interview with journalist Emily Maitlis on the BBC program Newsnight, which focused on his relationship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Sewell plays Andrew, the son of Queen Elizabeth II, while Anderson portrays Maitlis.

Scoop shows "the inside track of the women that broke through the Buckingham Palace establishment to secure the scoop of the decade that led to the catastrophic fall from grace of The Queen's 'Favorite Son,'" an official synopsis reads.

The film is written by Peter Moffat and directed by Philip Martin.
