The classic Arthurian legend is retold with modern relevance and energy,
starring Eva Green, Joseph Fiennes, Jamie and Campbell Bower. Set amidst
breathtaking locations in Ireland, Camelot brims with drama, romance, magic and
action. The 10, one hour-episodes will chronicle the beginnings of the classic
tale - one young man's quest to bring hope and harmony to a harsh, divided land.
Arthur's epic tale of adventure has been recounted many times before, but never
like this! Camelot takes Malory's well-known "Morte d'Arthur" and reshapes the
classic legend with modern emotions, conflicts and relevance. Set in 15th
century England, Camelot tells the story of Arthur, an unlikely young man who
discovers his true identity as King and is thrust into an unknown, mystical
world of chaos, power and deceit. In this time of crisis and uncertainty, Arthur
finds that he is his Kingdom's only hope. With youthful idealism, endless
courage and the counsel of the legendary wizard, Merlin, Arthur goes on to win
many remarkable battles for his people. The series is headed by an amazing
ensemble cast that includes Jamie Campbell Bower (Sweeney Todd) as Arthur,
Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love) as the wizard Merlin, Eva Green (Casino
Royale) as the sorceress Morgana, and Tamsin Egerton (Keeping Mum, St.
Trinian's) as Guinevere. From the makers of The Tudors, Spooks, Life on Mars and
Deadwood, comes this thrilling tale of fantastic adventure, provocative romance
and mysterious sorcery.
