The Favourite takes place between the end of the 17th century and first years of the 18th century, when Anne reigned from 1702-1707. It follows the shifting balance of power between the lead characters as they jockey for influence.

Stone is set to play Abigail Masham, an impoverished, distant relative of Sarah, Duchess of Marlsborough, who gains a position at court tending to the Queen.
