The film, based on McAlister’s book Scoops, documents the “high stakes negotiations with Buckingham Palace” through to the BBC’s interview with Andrew.
In real life, the royal took part amid intense criticism of his friendship with paedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein.However, the interview was dubbed a “car crash”, with commentators questioning the duke’s responses and condemning his unsympathetic tone and lack of remorse.Following the interview, the duke stepped back from public life, saying the scandal had become a “major disruption” to the Royal Family.

He later agreed a financial settlement with Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre, who had accused him of sexual assault in a US civil case.
As part of the out-of-court settlement, Prince Andrew, who always strongly rejected claims of wrongdoing, accepted no liability.

As well as Anderson and Piper, Scoop features Bodyguard star Keeley Hawes as one of Andrew’s advisers, while Sex Education star Connor Swindells plays a member of the press.Netflix released its first trailer for the film last month in which viewers were introduced to Anderson as Maitlis.
