Starz offers a re-telling of a classic tale – taking on power, love, magic and betrayal in their new series Camelot.
In the past few years, Starz has been making a name for itself with great original programming. Hoping to capture the hearts and imaginations of viewers, their newest series Camelot offers a different perspective on the classic tale we all know.
“In the wake of King Uther’s sudden death, chaos threatens to engulf Britain. When the sorcerer Merlin has visions of a dark future, he installs the young and impetuous Arthur, Uther’s unknown son and heir, who has been raised from birth as a commoner. But Arthur’s cold and ambitious half sister Morgan will fight him to the bitter end, summoning unnatural forces to claim the crown in this epic battle for control. These are dark times indeed for the new king, with Guinevere being the only shining light in Arthur’s harsh world. Faced with profound moral decisions, and the challange of uniting a kingdom broken by war and steeped in deception, Arthur will be tested beyond immagination. Forget everything you think you know…this is the story of Camelot that has neve been told before.”
With a phenomenal cast, including well-known actors Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare In Love, Elizabeth), Eva Green (Kingdom of Heaven, Casino Royale), Claire Forlani (Meet Joe Black, The Rock, CSI: NY) and Philip Winchester (Crusoe, Alice), as well as some lesser known actors, such as the lead, Jamie Campbell Bower (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Sweeney Tod and the Demon Barber of Fleet Street), Tamsin Egerton (St. Trinian’s) and Peter Mooney (Falcon’s Beach, Summer’s Blood), and such a dramatic story, this series could be a hit.
Camelot premieres on Starz tomorrow, April 1st, 2011, with a 2-hour episode starting at 10PM ET/PT. New episodes will air Fridays at 10pm ET/PT. For more information on Camelot, visit the Starz website.
