Directed by Rick Jacobson, The Royal Treatment is an upcoming romance flick starring Mena Massoud (of Aladdin fame) and Laura Marano. The film follows a blossoming romance between a prince and a hair stylist, in a rehash of the classic trope of royalty falling for an ordinary girl.
The Royal Treatment will premiere exclusively on Netflix on 20 January 2022. It is written by Holly Hester and produced by Marano's family-owned Calabrian Rhode Productions in collaboration with Chloe Smith.
The official synopsis for The Royal Treatment reads:
"New York hairdresser Izzy seizes the chance to work at the wedding of a charming prince, but when sparks between them fly, will love – or duty – prevail?"
