Watch Camelot Exclusive on AXN Beyond: April 4, 9pm

Dark Visions, Sudden Death, Battles, Decisions and Challenges that is what Camelot is going to offer the audience. A handsome young man - Arthur who was raised as a commoner will challenge the entire kingdom with his innocence and fight for justice. Camelot is an epic battle between dark forces and desire to reunite the kingdom. King Arthur's myth has been so effective onscreen (both TV and movies) and If you have watched many movies; am sure you'll able to like the latest version of medieval legend that was never told.

Another great news is Camelot is the first drama to simulcast across Asia and US courtesy of AXN Beyond. I'm lucky enough to see its premiere screening at My Cinema in Greenbelt 3.

AXN Beyond Unveils Camelot - The Story That Was Never Told 

Epic Drama Series Premieres Across Asia The Same Week As Its US Debut
31 March 2011 – The myth of King Arthur has inspired many movies and drama series. If you believe you have seen it all, maybe it’s time to forget everything you think you know. This April 4 (Monday) at 9PM, AXN Beyond brings you Camelot, a dark and gripping take on the medieval legend that was never told.

Camelot is the first drama series on AXN Beyond to have a simulcast across Asia in the same week as its U.S. broadcast.
Setting itself apart from other shows that have explored the Arthurian legend, Camelot traces the rise of young king Arthur as he struggles to unite a kingdom torn by war, deception and betrayal.

The kingdom of Camelot teeters on the edge of turmoil when King Uther Pendragon is suddenly murdered through supernatural means. Sorcerer Merlin (Joseph Fiennes, FlashForward, Shakespeare in Love) arrives too late to save the dying king, but dark visions compel him to install Uther’s secret son – hidden at birth and brought up as a commoner – as heir to the throne. So begins the rise of the young and impetuous Arthur (Jamie Campbell Bower, Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, The Twilight Saga: New Moon) as the new king.

Allying with dark supernatural forces and the kingdom’s enemies, Morgan, Arthur’s beautiful but ruthlessly ambitious half sister (Eva Green, The Golden Compass, Casino Royale) -– responsible for Uther’s death – wages a bitter war against him to claim the crown.

In such trying times, Arthur finds the innocent yet strong Guinevere (Tamsin Egerton, St Trinian’s, Keeping Mum) a beacon in the darkness and inspiration for him to grow into the king he has to become. Guided by Merlin’s magical foresight and belief, and aided by his brave knights, Arthur sets forth to bring justice, hope and freedom to a kingdom corrupted by violence, greed and despair.

Camelot is being brought to life by a stellar cast. Rising star Jamie Campbell Bower plays the young Arthur, while critically acclaimed actress Eva Green portrays key antagonist Morgan. Morgan’s foil, the resourceful, macho man-of-action Merlin is played by theatre veteran Joseph Fiennes. Budding British actress-model Tamsin Egerton is Guinevere, who cannot help falling for Arthur even when betrothed to knight Leontes.

Arthur’s birth mother Igraine is played by English actress Claire Forlani (Meet Joe Black), while Canadian actor Peter Mooney (Falcon Beach) takes the part of Arthur’s adoptive elder brother and loyal knight, Kay.

Cast aside, Camelot was shot amid stunning scenery in County Wicklow, Ireland, including on location at the stately Luggala Castle and the magnificent Powerscourt Estate. Dubbed the "Garden of Ireland” at the eastern frontier of the country overlooking the Irish Sea, County Wicklow, with its breathtaking rolling hills, was also where hit period drama series The Tudors was shot.

Achieving the production quality and visual experience akin to that of movies today, Camelot is shot on a budget of almost US$50 million, with up to 400 cast and crew members involved. The 10-part series is an Irish/Canadian co-production by GK-tv, the television division of Graham King and Tim Headington’s GK Films, the production studio behind the 2010 movie, The Tourist. The series is created by British screenwriter Michael Hirst, who was behind such works as The Tudors and movie Elizabeth: The Golden Age, and penned by Chris Chibnall of Torchwood and Life on Mars fame.

Drawing inspiration from Thomas Malory’s literary classic ‘Le Morte d’ Arthur’, Chibnall revealed that viewers of Camelot will not miss out on signature events and characters, such as the ‘sword in the stone’, the ‘Lady of the Lake’, and the beginnings of the Round Table – but none will be like what have been done before.

With all the ingredients of a world-class production, Camelot promises an experience beyond your imagination as the epic, untold story is revealed this April, only on AXN Beyond.
