LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Elizabeth Hurley is getting the royal treatment from E!

The "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" star has been tapped to star in the E! pilot "The Royals," an individual with knowledge of the casting told TheWrap on Wednesday.

"The Royals," which is executive produced and written by "One Tree Hill" alum Mark Schwahn, is contemporary drama about a fictional royal family. Billed as "part fairy tale, part cautionary tale," the pilot is "steeped in all of the regal opulence of the British monarchy and framed by Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Hurley will play the role of the queen in the pilot, which is described as "a tale of men and women corrupted by power, wealth and desire."

Schwahn is also executive producing the project, along with "One Tree Hill" and "Smallville" duo Brian Robbins and Joe Davola.
