HUZZAH!!! THE COMEDY EXTRAVAGANZA "GALAVANT"
AIRS JANUARY 2 ON ABC WITH BACK-TO-BACK EPISODES
John Stamos Guest Stars as Galavant's Rival, Sir Jean Hamm
Screenwriter/executive producer Dan Fogelman ("Crazy, Stupid, Love," "Tangled," "Cars") unites with Broadway and Hollywood award-winning musical team - composer Alan Menken ("The Little Mermaid," "Aladdin," "Beauty and the Beast") and lyricist Glenn Slater ("The Little Mermaid," "Tangled") - for a highly-anticipated comedy extravaganza. Once upon a time, the dashing hero, Galavant (Joshua Sasse), lost the love of his life, Madalena (Mallory Jansen), to the evil, King Richard (Timothy Omundson). Now our fallen hero is ready to take revenge and restore his "happily ever after." But it won't be without a few twists and turns along the way. "Galavant" airs on SATURDAY, JANUARY 2 (8:00--9:00 p.m. EST) with two 30-minute episodes, back-to-back on the ABC Television Network.
"Pilot" (8:00-8:30 p.m. EST) - When heroic, charming and handsome Sir Galavant loses his true love, the beautiful Madalena, to evil King Richard's wealth and power, he falls into a deep and drunken despair. Just as our hero hits rock bottom, Princess Isabella shows up with a quest to save her kingdom, defeat the despicable King Richard, and provide an opportunity for Galavant to reclaim Madalena. Galavant is off to become a hero again and strike a blow for true love - but first, Galavant has to fit into his old hero pants. (Rebroadcast. OAD: 1/4/15)
"Comedy Gold" (8:30-9:00 p.m. EST) - An encounter with land-bound pirates forces Galavant, Isabella and Sid to learn how to get over their petty squabbles and work together. Meanwhile, King Richard tries a new tact to win Madalena's love. (Rebroadcast. OAD: 1/11/15)
