Don’t adjust your monitor, you read that correctly, King Arthur will be a graffiti artist in the latest telling of the great hero. In a new television show titled, “Camelot,” which is being produced by Fox, the show will follow Arthur as he teams up with his ex-girlfriend Gwen to fight crime and modern magic. According to The Hollywood Reporter, here is how the show is being described:
“When an ancient magic reawakens in modern-day Manhattan, a graffiti artist named Art must team with his best friend Lance and his ex, Gwen — an idealistic cop — in order to realize his destiny and fight back against the evil forces that threaten the city.”
At first, it was hard to imagine anything could beat the team-up of King Arthur and some giant robots, but this might just take the prize as the most absurd conception of King Arthur. Is there even a possibility that something like this could ever work? Sure, there have been modern versions of classic characters. Take Sherlock Holmes for instance. Not only has the modern version of this character been a hit, but there are two shows which feature the him. But King Arthur never solved crimes like Sherlock did. It’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out.
Camelot is being developed by Dan Frey and Russell Sommer. They’ll also be in charge of the script and will executive produce.
