STARZ SETS APRIL 1st PREMIERE DATE FOR "CAMELOT," A NEW TAKE ON THE TIMELESS TALE OF KING ARTHUR

Epic Adventure Series Stars Joseph Fiennes, Eva Green and Jamie Campbell Bower

Los Angeles - December 20, 2010 - "Camelot," the highly anticipated original series, will premiere on Starz Friday, April 1st at 10 p.m. et/pt, the network announced today.

The 10-episode epic drama, redefines the classic medieval tale of King Arthur with an exciting ensemble cast including Joseph Fiennes reimagining the iconic role of Merlin, Jamie Campbell Bower as the young and reckless Arthur, and Eva Green in her television debut as the darkly powerful Morgan. The character-driven series also features Tamsin Egerton (Guinevere), Claire Forlani (Igraine) and Peter Mooney (Kay).

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 challenge of uniting a kingdom broken by war and steeped in deception, Arthur will be tested beyond imagination. Forget everything you think you know�this is the story of Camelot that has never been told before.

Starz' newest original series takes a distinctly fresh approach to one of the most enduring tales of all time, and brims with love, power and betrayal amidst breathtaking locales. Shot on-location in Ireland, "Camelot" is an Irish-Canadian co-production from Octagon and Take 5 Productions, and executive produced along with Ecosse Films and GK-tv. Starz and GK-tv are the U.S. and international distributors of "Camelot," respectively, and Take 5 Productions holds Canadian rights.
