Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Netflix is giving a glimpse of the new film Scoop.

The streaming service shared a teaser trailer for the movie Monday featuring 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 series Newsnight, which focused on his relationship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

The teaser shows Maitlis (Anderson) prepare for the infamous interview and ends with her sitting down with Andrew (Rufus Sewell), the son of Queen Elizabeth II.

Billie Piper, Keeley Hawes and Connor Swindells also star.

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.
