"Succession" is a script for an historical costume drama about central Europe in the mid-18th-century. It takes a certain degree of inspiration from 'The Tudors' and 'The Borgias', and while it aims to be a bit more historically accurate than either of them, it's also not completely wedded to historical precision. A major objective is to have a more inclusive and diverse cast than is common for such dramas; this was an era with many powerful women, and this show aims to give them proper prominence. Similarly, non-white and non-straight characters should have good representation. Every scene should have a speaking role for a named person who really existed and who is not a straight white man; every episode should pass the Bechdel Test. There's also a little 'Game of Thrones' about the whole thing - anyone can die.
