It has been hard to ignore the great programming and TV series that the BBC has been producing. Whether it be Doctor Who, Orphan Black, Copper, or Ripper Street when the BBC announces a new series, Mania pays attention. Here is the first photo and press release from their new series The Musketeers.
Official Press Release: BBC AMERICA has released the first image of new drama series, The Musketeers, premiering in 2014. Created by Adrian Hodges, the series is set on the streets of seventeenth century Paris, where law and order is more an idea than reality. More than King Louis XIII’s personal bodyguards, Athos, Aramis and Porthos stand resolutely for social justice, for honor, for valor, for love - and for the thrill of it. Luke Pasqualino (Skins, The Borgias) will star as D’Artagnan alongside Musketeers Tom Burke (Great Expectations, The Hour) as Athos, Santiago Cabrera (Merlin, Heroes) as Aramis and Howard Charles (Royal Shakespeare Company) as Porthos. Together they are a crack-team of highly trained soldiers. The Musketeers is a BBC Drama Production for BBC One, co-produced by BBC America and BBC WorldWide.
