Showtime and BBC Retelling Camelot


Showtime and the BBC are developing a contemporary series retelling of “Camelot,” with “The Tudors” masterminds Michael Hirst and Morgan O’Sullivan serving as creative kings, reports Variety.

Hirst (Elizabeth, Elizabeth: The Golden Age) will write the scripts and executive produce “Camelot,” along with O’Sullivan (P.S. I Love You) and Douglas Rae.

The pay channel and the BBC are co-financing development of scripts for the hourlong project. If greenlit, the series would be produced by Ecosse Films and Octagon Filmes.
