‘The Winter King’ featuring a score by Rob Lane premieres Sunday 20th August on MGM+.
Produced by Bad Wolf in association with One Big Picture and distributed by Sony Pictures Television, the ten-part series is adapted from Bernard Cromwell’s Warlord Chronicles novels by Kate Brooke (A Discovery of Witches) and Ed Whitmore (Silent Witness), with Otto Bathurst (Peaky Blinders) as lead director.
‘The Winter King’ stars Iain De Caestecke, Eddie Marsan, Nathaniel Martello-White, Ellie James, Stuart Campell and Olumide Olorunfemi.
‘Portraying a revisionist take on the well-loved Arthurian legends, the series follows Arthur Pendragon as he evolves from outcast son to legendary warrior and leader. The Winter King is set in the 5th century, long before Britain was united, in a land of warring factions and tribes when the world was brutal and lives were often fleeting.’
Following it’s US release, ‘The Winter King’ will air on ITVX in the UK later this year.
