Starz Greenlights New King Arthur Series ‘Camelot’
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Sword in the Stone

Starz is one of the best channels on TV and On Demand for watching movies, but it looks like they’re more and more ready every day to really jump into the original series game with HBO and Showtime.

The network already has their show Party Down doing well, and their new series Spartacus: Blood and Sand is currently winning new fans every single week, and already has itself a second season ordered and set to begin production some time after the maiden season ends. Now, according to reports, Starz has greenlighted a new series called Camelot, which will be a new take on the tales of King Arthur.

Chris Chibnall, who has been a writer on the highly-popular shows Torchwood and Doctor Who, has been tapped as a writer for Camelot, and Graham King will produce along with Morgan O’Sullivan and Michael Hirst, who created Showtime’s The Tudors.

King has previously been a producer on Gangs of New York, The Departed, and Blood Diamond. O’Sullivan has previously been a producer on Reign of Fire, Veronica Guerin, and King Arthur, while Hirst was a writer on Elizabeth, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, and Brad Bird’s San Francisco earthquake movie, 1906.

President and CEO of Starz Chris Albrecht says “The story of Arthur isn’t history, it’s mythology, and Camelot isn’t a place but an idea of hope that has resonated at different times throughout history,” when talking about the new announcement.

Camelot has a current order of 10 episodes on the way to make its first season, which is expected to debut in the first half of 2011.

  2. Hopefully it’s not about a young Arthur & Merlin as contemparies, cause that’s already being done by the BBC in their show Merlin (series 3 is currently being filmed). If that’s what this, I’ll cross my fingers that it’s period and not totally retooled for modern audiences…and please…please get some Brit actors for the role, no Americans/Canadians with cheesy Brit accents?
