BBC has released an international trailer for "A Very English Scandal," the three-part British mini-series that stars Hugh Grant as Jeremy Thorpe, a real-life British politician whose career was indelibly tarnished by a 1970s scandal involving an alleged homosexual relationship with former male model Norman Scott (played here by James Bond's "Q" actor Ben Whishaw).

Chronicling the events that led to a highly publicized trial during which the former leader of the British Liberal Party was accused of conspiring to assassinate his gay lover, the BBC drama hails from acclaimed TV producer-writer Russell T. Davies (Doctor Who, Torchwood, Queer as Folk) and is directed by Oscar-nominated helmer Stephen Frears (The Queen, Florence Foster Jenkins, Philomena).

Based on John Preston's best-selling historical book, "A Very English Scandal" is coming soon and will be released in the UK on BBC and in the US on Amazon.
