King Arthur on Starz

According to the Hollywood Reporter:

Chris Albrecht is building “Camelot” at Starz.

In its first series order since Albrecht took the reins as president and CEO, the pay cabler has greenlighted a contemporary retelling of the Arthurian legend from a producing team that encompasses four countries — the U.S., U.K., Ireland and Canada — and is led by Oscar-winning producer Graham King and “The Tudors” masterminds Morgan O’Sullivan and Michael Hirst.

The 10-episode “Camelot,” slated to premiere in first-half 2011, marks the first project from King’s recently launched GK-TV. It uses Thomas Malory’s 15th century compilation, “Le Morte d’Arthur,” often considered the definitive work on the legend of King Arthur, as a starting point for a take on the tale that looks to weave authenticity into a narrative relatable to contemporary audiences in the vein of Showtime’s “The Tudors.”

My life has been pretty simple. I grew up in Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor's in Advertising. I have spent about the last ten years in web development. In 1998, a friend of mine and I started a web design company we ran for three or four years before deciding to close it due to the demands of school. Since then, I stayed in the web working with various companies in Alabama. I worked for a brief period with Southern Progress, namely with Southern Living magazine and Health magazine, in their web departments. While there, I also wrote for Southern Living magazine, Health.com., and the company's internal newsletter. I write as much as I can. For the last five years, I have been working on my first novel. I am on the third revision now and hope to be finished with this draft by the end of the year. I also write short fiction, though not as frequently as I used to due to the time I spend on the novel. My goal is to have my novel published in the next three years. Other interests include: History (particularly medieval and ancient civlizations), Reading, Foreign Language (I currently speak Spanish but plan to learn as many as I can), Landscape Photography, the outdoors, sports (especially college football), and Travel.

  1. Along with the three King Arthur movies that are being slated, it’s getting to look a bit crowded. 🙂

    Anyway, I think you’ve been posting more about King Arthur than I have lately! I guess I’ve just been busy with other things, but I do need to get back at it.

    Thanks, Steve!

  2. Robert, I’ve been busy myself and haven’t had the time to post as much as I would like. Between my day job and re-writing / editing my novel, I don’t have as many hours in the day, unfortunately.
