Oscar-winner Catherine Zeta-Jones plays an unmerciful pageant coach in the official trailer for "Queen America," the new darkly comic streaming series for Facebook.

Created, written and executive produced by Meaghan Oppenheimer (co-writer of the Zac Efron drama "We Are Your Friends"), the series sees Zeta-Jones as Vicki Ellis, a tough, overly-demanding, yet highly sought-after pageant coach, who is known for coaching the best beauty queens in America. After some convincing, Vicki agrees to train Samantha, an amateur contestant from Tulsa, Oklahoma who, despite her lack of experience, is determined to win the title of Miss America.

Belle Shouse (from the series "Secrets and Lies") plays amateur beauty queen Samantha while Victoria Justice (Victorious, Zoey 101) is her main rival.

The cast also includes Judith Light, Jennifer Westfeldt, Teagle F. Bougere, Molly Price, Isabella Amara, Rana Roy, and Megan West.

Director Alethea Jones (Fun Mom Dinner) helms the pilot episode, which is set to premiere November 21st exclusively on Facebook Watch.

Set in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Queen America is a dark comedy about Vicki Ellis (Catherine Zeta-Jones), the most renowned -- and ruthless -- pageant coach in the state, and the hapless Samantha Stone (Belle Shouse) who hopes Vicki can mold her into a worthwhile contender for the title of Miss America.
