    Kate Winslet is quickly becoming the queen of HBO limited series. HBO announced on Tuesday that she's slated to star in The Palace, her fourth limited series at the network.

    Winslet will play the lead role in The Palace, which tells the story of one year within the palace walls of an authoritarian regime that is beginning to fall apart.

    Winslet will also executive produce, with Stephen Frears directing and Will Tracy serving as showrunner.

    "We are honored to be working with this incredibly talented group of filmmakers on The Palace,” said Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO Programming, in a statement. "The notion that Kate Winslet and Stephen Frears, two of our industry's leading lights (who — remarkably — have never collaborated before now), are joining forces to bring Will Tracy's wildly original, prescient, and dazzling scripts to life at HBO is a dream come true for us."

    In June, HBO announced that Winslet will star in a limited series based on the Hernan Diaz Novel "Trust." She also previously headlined HBO's Mare of Easttown and Mildred Pearce, winning an Emmy for her performances in both limited series.
